Viktor & Rolf Couture Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

We have seen some rather wacky collections in the past and we still are seeing quite a bit on the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, but possibly the most amusing of all is the whole stark white scheme to the Viktor & Rolf Couture spring/summer 2016 collection. That is one awesome line though, as we watch the models sashay onto stage in all white outfits, their half boots all black and everything looking quite perfect for those who are a little OCD when it comes to matching pieces. It was certainly a hoot to watch, with the ladies parading on like gorgeous white birds, all of a feather, and featuring wacky in a whole new manner.

It was really fun though, and we are looking forward to seeing some of these appear on the red carpet or during awards ceremonies, for these couture pieces are certainly conversation starters. We can imagine now, people walking by and complimenting you on the all Seeing Eye on your diaphragm, or the full face in abstract form appearing on your stark white midi length dress. Abstract you say? We had some melded figures with one side showing a naked chest and the other hair and a dress giving Picasso a run for his money.

Speaking of Picasso, we are almost sure he would have approved of these designs, even if the whole face on a dress thing is a little much. It is actually quite funny really, since so many of the designers are looking towards their profitability and have revamped their designs to move away from the art and more into the ability to wear a piece out “ponzy scheme” idea, robbing the couture week of its very essence. As such, it is easy to understand how we are so entertained by the truly artistic aspect to the Viktor & Rolf Couture spring/summer 2016 collection, from the use of colors, or lack thereof, to the ability to fashion something one can wear into an art piece that certainly will make you the star of the party you are attending.

The asymmetrical cuts in general also add to the perfect imperfection of it all, the hems and shoulders seeing the worst of it, or shall we say the best. It appears as if each woman depicted on each dress worn by each model has so many layers that it would take a while to peel away every layer, finally discovering the raw beauty that lies beneath.

When it comes to haute couture, the Viktor & Rolf Couture SS 2016 collection is pretty much what we have in mind. True creativity that might not bring one to market profitability, but one, which shows a flair for the arts in more ways than one. That is what gains a designer his or her respect, something Viktor & Rolf has certainly managed to do with its collection of abstract female faces on a stark white canvas, showing off emotions without really doing so.
