On the penultimate day of Paris's ultimate luxury fashion extravaganza, the Dutch design duo took the much-tapped flowering fashion trend to the max, and went back to their roots in more ways than one.
Inspired by the raw energy of Vincent van Gogh's exuberant depiction of the rural countryside, this season Viktor&Rolf's vision is decidedly bucolic.
The label offered beautiful "bouquet" pieces, combining abstract graphic volumes with organic elements.
Flowerprint A-line babydoll dresses paired with straw hats and flip-flops formed the basis for a bevy of increasingly colorful and sculptural looks.
A surreal exploration of print took shape with flower petals that seemed to open up and escape the garments, transforming 2D prints into 3D, often resulting in some surprisingly wearable pieces.
Yet another nod to life in the country -- straw hats speared with sheaves of barley sought to create new "organic unity where hat and dress become one", according to Viktor&Rolf.
Sandals made in matching printed fabric completed the extremely summery runway looks.
The dramatic texture and feel of the collection can be attributed to the brand's partnership with Dutch textile company Vlisco. The firm's signature authentic batik-inspired "wax-dyeing & block printing" technique ensures a unique high quality print with craquelé indigo lines and intense vibrant colors on both sides of the cloth.
Art collector Han Nefkens, a longstanding collaborator of Viktor&Rolf, acquired three pieces of the collection after the show debuted on January 28 on the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week.
These three works will be donated to the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Their longstanding collaboration has led to the purchase or commissioning of pieces that are donated or given as a long-term loan to the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen as part of the Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge project.
