The Viktor & Rolf Monsieur ss2013 collection reflects the house’s approach to a smart gentleman, with unexpected twists in detail. Inspired by the vibrant colors and relaxed silhouettes of India, the collection merges a layered, soft silhouette with a traditional sartorial approach. The result is a colorful collection with an elegant, relaxed attitude.
The silhouettes are a combination of summer tailoring layered with light, easy pieces. Colorful tunics peak out through the range and have a relaxed summer fit. A house classic trench in terracotta is lightweight and unexpectedly lined with the signature spectacles-print, an iconic print for Monsieur.
The tuxedo in summer wool-silk is freshly done in a dove grey resulting in a modern, chic approach to evening wear.
The traditional, western herringbone print is modernly re-interpreted in variations. A palette of salmon and oranges ranging from pale to bright are the highlight seasonal colors against classical contrasts of white, black, midnight and beige.
Composed of a combination of brushed leather, canvas, mirrored leather, or suede, the shoes and bags complement the relaxed elegance of the collection.
