Another Disappointment. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have failed on seeming all fronts for the last few seasons. Their Haute Couture collections are Boring Indulgences and their Ready-to-Wear has just devolved into meaningless Detritus. The clothes may be striving for more commercial relevance but in taking this less arty approach, the duo have lost all of what made people interested in them in the first place. A SERIOUS and Huge Refresh is needed, And if this Fall 2014 Haute Couture Collection is any Indication, it needs to happen Tout De Suite!
Mother always said if you haven't anything nice to say, refrain from saying anything at all... since this is a review I MUST Say something, but I will be Merciful by being Brief. Concerning themselves with the rather Quirky Idee of Wearing the Red Carpet that has become such an obsession in these last few decades was worth exploring. But the way that Horsting and Snoeren did decide to tackle this challenge was Bulky and Heavy and Unsettling. It wasn't attractive in the least and created Graphically Challenging Proportions. Their Ambitious undertaking failed drastically and Yielded not one garment of Desirability or Wearable Appeal.
Further Exploration would lead to Berating and that isn't necessary. The collection was a Failure. Pure and Simple. Nothing to Add. Nothing More to Illuminate.
