"Spiritual Glamour", Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2019/2020


Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 further  explores Viktor&Rolf’s notion of conscious design with emphasis on ‘Spiritual Glamour’. With the  original meaning of the  word  ‘Glamour’ referring to that  of a magic spell, an illusion said to be cast by witches. In this case, the spell is cast to transform a general feeling of doom about the environment into positive action.

Joining forces with Dutch artist-alchemist Claudy Jongstra, this collection illustrates that  change for the  better is indeed possible. For several decades now, Claudy has been a trailblazer of sustainability.

Her hand felted fabrics are works  of art, woven from wool of her own  flock of sheep and  dyed with natural ingredients from her own gardens. Her holistic approach demonstrates how  man and  nature are interconnected. A longstanding source of inspiration, it is our privilege to collaborate with this exceptional artist this season.

This collection focusses on the colour black, not  just any black, but a multitude of tones centering on the  darkest colour of the  spectrum. Dyed  by Claudy Jongstra in a gently simmering cauldron with plant pigments, her extensive knowledge and  experimentation allowed for the  re-discovery of the long-lost creation process the  famous 'Burgundian Black': the most precious of true blacks based solely on natural ingredients and  ancient recipes. The products of her eco-aware practice are used in a series of sculptural coats in an array  of voluminous shapes.

The mood is pagan. Black felt coats give way to a series of colorful dresses in fabrics of Viktor&Rolf’s own  making:  vintage garments and  fabrics were disassembled to threads and re-constituted as needle punch, almost like abstract paintings.

Elaborate patchwork, appliqué, and  crochet cultivate a handmade, 'do-it-yourself', almost naive aesthetic.

With creatively embroidered symbols of the  sun, moon and  the  stars, the collection is an ode to mother nature and  her powers of spiritual glamour and ecological renaissance. Christian Louboutin boots in a complementing palette complete this season’s Haute Couture AW19 look.
