Viktor&Rolf’s Spring/Summer 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection is a surreal mix of sportive and feminine influences. A contemporary elevation of modern-day sportswear infused with an array of feminine and unexpected elements, which focus in on bringing sporty back.
Presented in the Résidence des Pays-Bas, the Dutch designer’s collection hones in on compact tailoring, athletic detailing and an abstract elastication that adds an unexpected twist to the garments. Cycling shorts and pants; tank tops, mini skirts and dresses create a super tight fit, which builds the base of this season’s defile and are complemented by statement pieces such as jackets, jumpsuits and voluminous shirts and dresses which boast a fullness and add to the creation of the SS15 silhouette.
Delicate and strong, the collection is accented through a lively colour palate highlighted by tones of lobster pink, yellow, pale lime, pale lavender, and sky blue. Embroidered and printed bright flower motifs contrast the soft colour palate, the sporty elements and enhance the visual experience. The prints are bold and playful, mimicking the 3D flowers used in the embroidery. Contrasting the flowers, a crinkle print depicts a more abstract interpretation and ties back to the overall sporty influence of the collection.
This season’s accessories represent a luxurious and sportive feeling, which is interpreted in the construction, material and colour of the designs. An integrated sock adds to the playfulness of the statement shoes and creates an outspoken style, which is perfectly in tune with the essence of the collection. Spring/Summer 2015 introduces the exclusive Viktor&Rolf Baby Bombette handbag, which enriches the house’s signature Bombette handbag range.
