Autumn-Winter 2010/11 – Fashion theater can now be defined as any collection produced by Viktor and Rolf. Period. The dramatics are always on the agenda for the innovative pair. This time it the theatrics transpired from a makeshift mechanical production line. 2D bolts and nuts provided the backdrop for the collection to begin. First, an extravagantly oversized coat appeared, but upon closer inspection the model had a number of layers on and as the show continued the layers were stripped back, altered, and fitted on to the next girl. The dark palette consisted of wet-look black, tweed, mohair and clothes embellished with mechanic like studs and metallic zips. Finally, there were incredible sculptured pieces of art that were unwearable, but exemplified the creative elements of the pair. With the designers working in tandem to undress and redress the layering, it was clear this was another symbolic collection from the innovative duo.
