Viktor and Rolf Museum

Time for a retrospective, Viktor and Rolf have decided to play with dolls, and for our delight. June 18 is thus open in London (at the Barbican Art Gallery) An unusual exhibition traces the stories of these two Siamese twins of adoption that since their arrival on the scene mode, are constantly shoving genres…

15 years have passed since the discovery of the Dutch duo in Hyères festival. Their approach to seam – between excess, fantasy storytelling and performance – quickly made them the Gilbert & George of fashion. Between stage costumes and ready-to-wear, their creations contain an extravagant imagination dose that would place more readily in a museum as a bearing.

However, despite their perilous research on volumes, unrestrained expression of their fantasy and their conceptual shows, both men survived the harsh law of the market and managed to affix the seal Viktor & Rolf on the fashion landscape. Thus, their ready-to-wear collections sell well, fragrance is successful and creative spirit captivated the high-end sector, promoting collaborations like with Piper (2007) and Samsonite (2009).

Their unusual path, their unusual world and proved their talent deserved a break in the race for parades, until the viewer escapes from turn-over calendar and discover – or rediscover – the tasty creations and trends outside of this dream arty team.

A retrospective in honor of those who have their shop in reverse, and who did not hesitate to wear iron structures in their models (and defying gravity) could not be done without becoming a work of art of art in itself.

The two men, obsessed with the scales of magnitude since their inception, have fun and to disturb the visitor by offering 54 porcelain dolls wearing their creations reproduced identically, alongside mannequins actual size wearing outfits sized, all of which are associated with the continuous projection of their shows. The set is designed to form a comprehensive collection, which will continue to grow over time: now, each new presentation will take its matching doll.

Between art, fashion and marketing, the two men begin to find the right balance, and without denying their freedom. This exhibition quintessence of creativity, and the upcoming launch of a new fragrance are a good example…
