Yes, credit crunch and following economic recession made lots of designers to cut back on their collections but it was only Victor&Rolf who did that literallly. Couture dresses the duo, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, created had cutouts here and there, partially and entirely through.
With the credit crunch and everybody cutting back, we decided to cut tulle ball gowns,” Snoeren said.
The gowns we are talking about came at the end of the show and made everyone in the audience hold their breath.
The skirt of a bustier dress was a solid mass of net ruffles, except for the place where a hole had been tunneled front to back and where the edges were chopped away.
Another frock was sliced in half with a good six inches between the top and a bottom.
A red gown was all way similar to an apple partially eaten by worms with holes everywhere. Fabulous conception that will find its admirers soon.
Lots of other pieces from the range were not as impressive but still looked interesting.
They were closer to outfits we can use daily and that was a highly pratical part in the line. Some garments were very feminine with all womanly details like ruffles, plisse and embroidery.
While others were a combination of masculine and truly ladies’ fashion.
The due hadn’t forgotten the lingerie trend either.
There were outfits like silk satin bed jackets, camis, and pajamas with peekaboo lace insets. And a really glorious part were the shoes – pink, black, beige, with flower details, zippers and sequins.
