Passionate Fashion Designer/Bartender/Adventurer & Backpacker
For their 25th anniversary, Viktor&Rolf have thrown themselves an amazing exhibition that looks back at all the wearable art pieces they have created throughout the past quarter-century. I had a chance to visit this exhibition at Rotterdam’s Kunsthal art museum. To be honest, if this Dutch design duet would open their own museum I would happily spend all day there. Maybe for the 50th Anniversary.
I always get confused about the direction that I should start looking at the exhibition. In my mind, in Europe, you turn right at the entrance and go around but it could be my 2 years living in England that made me turn left and come across the final exhibit first.
Basically, I had dessert before the dinner. The 1st piece was looking back at "Russian doll " 1999 fashion show where they created Russian Matryoshka (матрёшка). Have a look for yourself at the link below.
Space had all the layers of the "Russian doll" outfit and it is amazing how many layers you can fit on one model.
The following room was a celebration of the best and most interesting fairy-tale garments that I have ever seen in real life. The garments were borrowed from everywhere and some of them were replicated in a smaller doll variation: I have only one word how to describe it - CUTE! CUTE! CUTE!
In 2015 for their fall/winter haute couture fashion shows the actually created an art piece by undressing the models and creating an art gallery.
I remember seeing that fashion show for the 1st time it took my breath away. So brilliant and inspiring. Don't believe me? Have a look for yourself in a link below
Overall the exhibition was very inspiring and I would most definitely visit their museum if they do create one. It's amazing to see how fashion can be turned into art pieces. It was amazing to see the garments from legendary fashion shows in real life.
