Viktor & Rolf, continuing on their course, presented The Performance of Sculptures Haute Couture show for the SS16 season in Paris featuring somewhat simple and at the same time complex approach to Cubism and Sculpting. The whole collection features white polos with cubist, almost Picasso-inspired faces that overpowered the human form and dominated the hall of Palais de Tokyo. While the models walked to the soundtrack of a choral cover of Radiohead’s Creep, they created a dance of faces that were stuck into the polos, almost building a choreographed illusion.
The looks got more complex as the show progressed, leaving the models completely out of sight, with only massive white faces floating around. The actual heads of models disappeared and the focus was now set on a crowd of floating white sculptures.
The Performance of Sculptures who has yet again showcased Viktor & Rolf dedication to carrying out an idea, precisely crafted to fit their vision and concept. Always impressive!
