SPLIT REFLECTION
Paris: Duality and reflection were Viktor & Rolf’s obsessions for S/S 13 and they presented looks vertically split in half—one side white, one side black. The mirrored lamé finish of accordion pleated skirts and sashes suggested self-observation, as did swirled Picasso faces. Elsewhere these themes were less evident, as the designers fell back on their signature boudoir references with satin skirts tied at the waist and chiffon column dresses. Several interesting new styles showed up, like leather motorcycle vests trimmed with ruffled peplums, but outerwear was bulky and odd, constructed from poufs of tulle. In the end, Viktor & Rolf were best at their most literal, closing the presentation with a sophisticated and simple strapless gown embellished with a fractured mirror appliqué. —Nina Stotler
