Show Review: Viktor & Rolf Fall 2010 Ready to Wear
By Claire

The sounds of clocks ticking and machines buzzing greeted attendees at Viktor & Rolf’s Fall 2010 Ready to Wear show in the Jardin des Tuileries. Wrenches, screwdrives, and hammers were stenciled onto the pale backdrop, forecasting that fashion engineers Viktor & Rolf were about to go to work on their newest masterpiece. Once the lights lifted, a serious faced Kristen McMenamy sauntered onto the stage, weighed down with what looked like 14 layers of embellished, sequined, tweed and wool coats. To my surprise, designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren followed her onto the stage–the show had begun:

Quietly and methodically, the Dutch duo peeled layer upon layer off of Kristen, then placed the discarded piece onto the next model.

Black and dark gray liquid outer layers were transformed into dresses, statement coats, and skirts, highlighting the collection’s versatility and malleability:

While some pieces, like the heavy hipped confection above (which transformed into a cape), seemed a little over the top, several pieces, including the oversized coats and strapless, zipped and ripped cocktails , would undoubtedly find homes in the wardrobes of celebrity front row fixtures Lindsay Lohan and Beth Ditto:

Viktor & Rolf represented what I love most about Paris Fashion Week. They married spectacle with practicality, amusing and beguiling audience members by their mere presence and deft handiwork while also offering a handful of very wearable, seasonless pieces.
Check out a few videos:

The crowd clapped and cheered for the final look. I’d never seen anything like it.

In short, I loved it.
