Viktor & Rolf Spring 2012 Collection
Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren are famous for sending dramatic, theatrical looks down the runway, but this collection doesn’t seem as refined or as thought-out as previous ones. Their tendency to play with scale and proportion is still here, with giant whip stitches punctuating many of the looks, but there’s a stiffness here that’s not very appealing; as if these were doll clothes blown up to life size. Maybe that was the intent, but we’re not sensing the wit and cheekiness they’re known for. Most of it just looks awkward to us.
