VIKTOR&ROLF MARIAGE F/W 2018
Fall/Winter 2018 marks the third Viktor&Rolf Mariage collection, fashion artists’ Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s contemporary exploration of luxury bridal wear.
The collection focuses on mingling 60’s sculptural couture influences and signature elements such as bows, flowers and voluminous tulle, essentially crafting a framework that is typically Viktor&Rolf.
The collection features beautiful a-line
dresses, elegant columns, voluminous ballgowns, short flirty dresses and sharp tailored jumpsuits, which build upon the bold aesthetics and visual language of the Marriage line.
This season, sophisticated constructions give way to silhouettes that are both sculptural and graphic.
Fabrics are structured, and embellishments are bold and textural. Signature dramatic bows are draped and integrated within the patterns, a feat that is both eye catching and technically challenging.
Delicate embellishments of 3D Plexiglas flowers and crystals are the statement of the season, with the use of Plexiglas an as unconventional material turned into a couture artwork, a signature Viktor&Rolf approach to craftsmanship.
Dramatic back interest is created through outspoken trains – notably featured on a majestic tulle gown featuring a strapless bodice and gathered tulle ruffles that form a generous crystallised tulle fur volume which falls into soft folds down the skirt and cathedral train.
A standout and new introduction for the season, the Sculptural Bow Train mini pantsuit, features an off the shoulder neckline that wraps
around the back and turns into a generous dramatic bow train.
The collection is produced in partnership with Justin Alexander, an international bridal-wear designer and manufacturer.
