Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture Spring 2016 is Wearable Picasso

For Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016, Viktor&Rolf further explores the notion of Wearable Art with a surreal merger of sculpture and clothing. The Performance of Sculptures was shown yesterday at Paris’ Palais de Tokyo, during the city’s haute-couture fashion week.┬áThis season, the collection explores the idea of the archetypical white polo shirt meeting cubism. Resulting in a collection consisting of a series of form studies where clothing and sculptural elements interact with an increasing degree of complexity. The designs blur the boundaries between garment and sculpture, and question the relationship between wearer and clothing, sometimes overtaking the body and obscuring the face of the wearer. The sculpture is humanized and the wearer, sculpted: thus composing the performance of sculptures.
