2013 Autumn Winter Paris Fashion Week: Viktor & Rolf
The button-downs were finished with oversize bows — maybe the clearest representative of the boy-meets-girl feel that ran throughout Viktor & Rolf's Winter '13 lineup. Where there were mini hemlines, ruffles, and drop waists, there were sharp, double-breasted jackets, vests, and smart loafers to counter all the leg-baring and femininity — a perfect marriage of the delightfully girlie and the charming and boyish. From start to finish, the show ran entirely in black and white — save for the red footwear that punctuated a handful of the looks — making textural play crisper and easier to spot, like the furry white details on head-to-toe black suiting or a furry black coat finished with spots of white patches. It's a story of little dichotomies — black and white; sweet and masculine; sharp and soft — that add up to something very pretty without the bells and whistles.
