(Paris Fashion Week) Viktor & Rolf

 

 They say couture is the “ideas factory'' for the fashion industry.
No one tries to demonstrate this more than Dutch design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren _ who in their show conjured up a bizarre series of huge, white fabric figurative face sculptures.
The show started with a wearable buttoned white mini-dress _ of which the vertical buttoned down part morphed into a large human nose in profile. As the collection progressed _ things took a turn for the surreal, at times evoking Pablo Picasso's one-line drawings on the 1950s.
Blown-up segments, which resembled pieces of paper cut into shapes, adorned the looks.
They started small _ like a face across the bust _ but grew in size and complexity until the models' faces were completely obscured by the weird paper-like sculptures. Some fashionistas were worried that one model, with a huge fan covering her face, might crash into the front row.
She didn't.—AP
