I went to Utrecht’s Centraal Museum to see the House of Viktor and Rolf show which debuted at the Barbican in the Fall. I got super giddy when we first entered the exhibition -which opens with three looks from ‘The Fashion Show’ f/w ’07 collection. Life sized chubby cheeked porcelain doll heads sat atop disproportionately frail bodies and I was all loves it.
Favourites were the ‘One Woman Show’/Tilda Swinton f/w ’03 ready to wear collection, ‘Russian Doll’ with Maggie Rizer from f/w ’99, and the amazing ‘Long Live the Immaterial (Bluescreen)’ from f/w 2002.
I also finally learned that they were the ones responsible for the amazing trench coat I was in awe of over 2 years ago. Cool beans.
