Viktor & Rolf

Viktor & Rolf's Over-the-Top Wares Go Down Under

A selection of signature pieces from Viktor & Rolf's archive will soon go on view in the 23-year retrospective Fashion Artists, opening October 21 at the National Gallery of Victoria in Australia.

Rolf Snoeren and Viktor Horsting, the two halves of the Dutch label, decided to call it Fashion Artists because that's how they see themselves: artists who work with fashion and designers who work with art. The show is curated by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, the French-Canadian celebrated for his recent Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition.

The V&R retrospective will feature more than 35 pieces from the duo's couture and (now defunct) ready-to-wear collections in Paris, including Wearable Art, One Woman (which featured Tilda Swinton on the runway, alongside dozens of doppelgängers), Van Gogh Girls, and Russian Doll. Several one-off works will also be showcased, such as wall tapestries created from press clippings.
