VIKTOR & ROLF FALL 2020 HAUTE COUTURE COLLECTION
Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren create a Couture collection for an unprecedented time with bathrobe-inspired gowns and voluminous coats.
July 14, 2020
For the Viktor & Rolf Fall 2020 Haute Couture, the designers created three wardrobes for three mindsets in extraordinary times of change.
The first reflects “a rather somber mood,” as the narration by Mika explains: “a feeling of sadness and anger, familiar to many these days.” There’s a navy, satin empire-cut dress featuring raincloud motifs; a grey chenille wrap gown with quilted satin cuffs and collar reminiscent of a luxurious bathrobe and a faux-leather coat embellished with spiky cones throughout, which one can imagine makes it easier to communicate social distancing.
The second grapples with the roller coaster of emotions many are experiencing during this time. There’s a nightgown-esque, one-shouldered, pink synthetic satin dress decorated with a range of emojis; another bathrobe-inspired gown, this one in a plushy pink with canary yellow detailing and oversized bows down the arm; then, another sculptural coat that “guarantees you will remain in your own safe zone while venturing out into the world,” assures Mika, with an A-line shape and colorful cones jutting out down the skirt.
The third and final “mindset” conveys hope for a better future via a heart motif story — seen in a silvery négligé with lace hearts in different colors, a white quilted bathrobe gown with oversized red-heart pockets and a white finale look with rows of glitter-trimmed hearts running down it.
