Viktor & Rolf Celebrate 25 Years of Wearable Art

By Pearl Fontaine

June 20, 2018

Currently on view at the Kunsthal Rotterdam is an exhibition celebrating a major milestone for fashion house Viktor & Rolf. The large retrospective was created in collaboration with curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot, “Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years,” showcases the Dutch duo’s radical concept of “wearable art.”

“With exquisite craftsmanship and dreamy silhouettes, sometimes made from tinkling bells or red carpet, the fashion artists Viktor&Rolf –a real Dutch national treasure –have been creating wearable art for the past twenty-five years in the most unique and singular style,” said Loriot.

The show includes over 45 haute couture pieces from the house’s collections as well as stage costumes created for ballets and operas, and more. In addition to the many archival designs is a look at Viktor&Rolf’s current project, “Dolls.” These antique doll replicas are dressed in iconic looks (like the costume created for Madonna’s fundraiser for Art Basel in 2016) as well as a selection of garments that have never before been shown.

“Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years” is on view at the Kunsthal Rotterdam through September 30.
