Viktor & Rolf.

Sat. 09/27/2014.

Just another Baffling and Inarticulate Miscalculated outing from Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren. Spring 2015 did nothing to further the conversation of the viability of Horsting and Snoeren's Ready-To-Wear clothes. Their collections Teeter-Totter Wildly and Wibbly-Wobbly from uninspired drivel to the convoluted and terrifyingly overdone, as in this contorted mess of ruching and poufing and Workout/Athletic wear. The common ground on where these two disparate ideas meet was clearly in the heads of the designers alone. 

Simple is a No-No word in the world of Viktor & Rolf, but as it often is the case, it was the word that belonged to the only pieces here that were worth investigating further... A White Shirt dress with a band of Ruched Smocking across the waist and an asymmetric hem was worth a look as was Malaika Firth's Asymmetric hem "Tank Top" Dress with Bicycle shorts underneath. Otherwise, Unflattering and Frankly, Unappealing from beginning to end. Horsting and Snoeren are MUCH better than this! 

That's All.
