Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists

Published by National Gallery of Victoria
Text by Thierry-Maxime Loriot.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists.'Since forming their creative partnership in 1992, Dutch fashion designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren—working together as Viktor&Rolf—have gained critical acclaim for their cerebral, witty and rebellious approach to design, their technical virtuosity and deep knowledge of fashion history. Their spectacular avant-garde creations are showcased for the first time in this richly illustrated publication.
Throughout their illustrious 25-year career, Viktor&Rolf have carved a contradictory identity that pushes the boundaries between art and fashion, often contrasting romance and violence, exuberance and control, classicism and rebellion. Exploring their concept of “wearable art,” Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists features some of the Dutch design duo’s most show-stopping and innovative works, drawn from the Viktor&Rolf archive as well as museum collections in the Netherlands. It includes an exclusive recent interview with the designers, a fascinating glossary of Viktor & Rolf and an essay by the Geneva-based academic Luca Marchetti, whose analysis reveals Viktor & Rolf’s complex relationship with haute couture and its history.

Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren (both born 1969) started making ready-to-wear clothes in 2000. In 2005 they were contracted by L’Oréal to develop their first perfume, called Flowerbomb; the following year their first men’s perfume, Antidote, was introduced in the United States, and they presented a clothing line for H&M. Their collections have featured performers such as Tilda Swinton, Tori Amos, Rufus Wainwright and Brigitte and Joan Wasser. In 2008 an exhibition titled The House of Viktor&Rolf was presented at the Barbican in London.
