Backstage Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Show Paris FW2017

Take a look backstage at the haute couture-show of Viktor & Rolf. Lats minute action before the dolls came alive on stage.

Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Show Paris FW2017

With Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2017, Viktor&Rolf presented a parade of Haute Couture Action Dolls: a surreal yet playful fashion team of stylised Viktor&Rolf mascots, rooting for a world that is creative, diverse and eco-conscious.

Their outfits consist of a bomber jacket, jeans and a t-shirt. Various doll elements, including fabric-covered faces and bodies are fragmented and mingled into an extreme patchwork statement.

Patchwork continues to explore the idea of upcycling. It also serves to symbolise a wish for harmony: to create unity through diversity.

Claes Iversen Haute Couture SS2017

Never had Claes Iversen designed a collection so quickly as with this SS2017 couture collection ‘Horizontal Illumination’. Within one week he had his couture plan for upcoming season rolled out. Yet those ideas maybe came to mind quickly, the execution and construction of these showstopping designs took the Claes Iversen atelier hours, days, weeks.. forever.

Like any other Claes Iversen couture collection for SS2017 once again so much thought and the utmost precision went into the details. Beads, pearls, embroideries, fringes, ruffles and studs all created and added to the clothes with so much love for the art (craftmaship) and dedication. The morning of the show some dresses still needed finishing and several minutes before showtime Claes Iversen’s team was still cutting the fringes of a floor sweeping gown (still the designer himself was calm & collected throughout the day). It needed to be perfect and precise even though those slight changes in length were hardly noticeable as the models walked the runway. Yet it is with this eye for detail that makes Claes Iversen stand apart from most designers. It is those refined details that turn any of his designs into immediate show stoppers. They make you want to see more, up close. And trust us at these couture pieces you just can keep on staring.

Just as mesmerizing was the color palette of choice; emerald, ruby red, soft pink, mustard and mint worked together beautifully. The designs were graceful, playful, cool, elegant and original. Fishnet stockings, metallic heels, the models wavy long hair and red lips added to the right contemporary fashion sense. There were enough floor sweeping dream dresses to make any woman want to get married right away and that structural, flow mint number was simply breathtaking.

We couldn’t be more proud to have Claes Iversen as the first designer to show at our TPS show venue. What a collection, what a night. Thanks everyone for making this possible and congratulations Claes and his team on this stunning couture collection.

To state Viktor & Rolf’s couture collection was breathtakingly beautiful would still be an understatement. Their collection of broken dreams was simply stunning from beginning to end. Inspired by Kintsugi (the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum as it’s breakage and repair are part of the history of an object) the Dutch design duo cut up old vintage gowns and used pieces of them on their brand new designs (quite the sustainable idea). Attached with a gold or silver lining around it, just like the cups and bowls you’d find after Googling ‘Kintsugi’. Now in case you thought this game of cut and paste would make the couture pieces end up like rag dolls, this was definitely not the case. The pieces gave the new looks, which were already stunners, extra value, a deeper layer. The color scheme (that moved from brights to pastels) worked gorgeously as did they interplay of sheerness, highly decorated jacquards, polka dots, checks and thick layers of 3D tule. Viktor and Rolf even pulled off some impressive couture pants. And believe it or not this collection even appeared quite wearable (given that it was haute couture and Viktor & Rolf). The finale of five different (broken) dream dresses was every girls fantasy. The deep green cut-outs attached to the light pink gown (look 28) was the perfect couture gown mash up. Couture collage done like only Viktor & Rolf would. Can you tell we’re head over (their shiny, ankle strap) heels?
