Women In Black

Viktor & Rolf always give us surprises. With that being said, for the Spring Summer 2010 collection, Viktor & Rolf are creating a small capsule collection that encompasses five cocktail dresses, for the very first time. This collection has been given a name of a special label, Viktor & Rolf Black Dress. From this S/S 2010 collection on, every season will launch a new capsule collection comprising five dresses.

The idea behind this capsule is to always reinvent the Little Black Dress offering a point of difference from the rest of the collection. Since these pieces combine classic designs with original chic details, they remain timeless iconic fashion pieces that fit to grace the most enviable wardrobes. For the S/S 2010 capsule collection, Viktor & Rolf propose soft shapes, silhouettes and fabrics, which make the looks very chic, with a relaxed attitude. The feminine references are lingerie, bustiers and soft bows.

In the designers’ own words: “Our inspiration began with the women we imagined would wear them. With sources ranging from a certain technique or silhouette to the memory of a vintage dress, the garments capture our take on the spirit of a woman, that may be serenely fluid, delightfully structured, lavish and decorative or classically alluring”.

They are just simply amazing, aren’t they? Well, I just can’t wait for more capsule collections to come in the future, good job Viktor & Rolf!
