Fall 2011 RTW: Viktor & Rolf

6 Mar

Well Hello Middle Ages! Have yet to see you on the runway this season. I really do not know what to make of this collection. I absolutely loved the idea but the execution was a little severe. Without the spirals on the sleeves of the white, wool jacket, it really would be a beautiful piece. It’s way too severe and difficult to wear with them though. The middle of the show toned down with some simple dresses with prints and others with what looked like chain mail — although was just a type of leather I believe — or mesh material that gave the same effect. The end was just insane though. In both a good and bad way. The face paint definitely succeeded with the shock and awe factor but I did not see the connection between the demonic red and the middle ages theme. It was by no means a boring collection, but definitely not the most wearable.
