Look 18, Fashion Statements, Haute Couture Collection, lente/zomer 2019
Materials: Collection Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (with the support of the Han Nefkens Foundation)
From a cloud of black tulle appears a smiling, bright yellow sun enveloped by the slogan ‘I want a better world’. The entire collection is made from eight kilometres of tulle. Each dress is the canvas of a bold slogan, and literally makes a statement. Viktor&Rolf wanted to explore the expressive power of garments through this collection.
The extreme, sculptural, airy volumes with transparent ruffles, puffed sleeves, and bows bear all the typical characteristics of the visual language of designer duo Viktor Horsting (°1969, Geldrop, the Netherlands) and Rolf Snoeren (°1969, Drongen, the Netherlands).
40 kunstenaars uit 18 landen brengen 60 kunstwerken op 16 binnen- en buitenlocaties naar Kortrijk.
