PFW: Viktor & Rolf Fall/Winter 2009

With slow paced models with faces painted white, designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren paraded their collection on a runway with a backdrop of Greco-Roman-style statues. Coats were heavenly structured and elaborately draped. And seen was a lot of silk marble prints, which were inspired of the stone utilized to carve the status. They experimented with stiff wollens in shades of white, black, and grays. Flat pressed 3-D decor were put on a number of looks, like certain skirts, dresses and vests. The detailing was exquisite and the whole reference to stones and marble was spectacular, such as the kaleidoscope dresses trimmed which had a swish of white draped silk, The color pallet was quite soft, showing hues of grays, ivory, brown, black and blush. It was truly a work of art this collection and impeccably elegant. The footwear came in various styles, I particularly loved the black sequined slouch boot, I died when I saw it.
