Viktor & Rolf usually do something different than expected all the while fulfilling expectations. While this season could be the more fun, big sister to 2013 pre-fall collection, there are similarities that prove they're related. The ruffles and bows are repeats but refreshing. The bows have become somehow more masculine and angular and the ruffles are occasionally accompanied by oversized pleats. The use of black leather items with chiffon details on complimentary tops or hems is a juxtaposition that symbolizes the feminine and masculine features that V & R so beautifully craft. It is not every season that they take to such work but when they do, it is flawless. Sweetheart applique pieces on tops and dresses look more like cartoon shadows of bunny ears and are perfectly placed. The bunny that comes mid collection is the savory piece for all fashionistas to crave and the oversize rose print jumped off their perfume Flowerbomb and onto this season's textiles. A leg of mutton sleeved wool grey dress with a dropped asymmetrical ruffle hem was the highlighted look. Colors were simple with cremes, blacks and grays, often paired with themselves and a serenity coral and mauve marriage with the rose print in gown and tuxedo the spectacle at the finale. To say this collection is funky and wearable is the truth. For a more fantasy filled description, you could say it was Alice in Mansland.
