So Picasso: Viktor & Rolf Couture Spring 2016

Picasso goes polo. That was the message of Viktor & Rolf’s gratifyingly over-the-top couture outing today, a mash-up of the classic white shirt and the father of cubism. Each concoction more elaborate than the last, with each perspective given its own chunk of space, the collection reached fever pitch with a piqué vision of Guernica teetering down the runway.

Following last season’s study in art framing, the Dutch designers — who recently shuttered the ready-to-wear side of their label — seem intent on blurring the line between fashion and wearable art.
