Viktor & Rolf = The Incredibles!

I have been obsessed with Viktor & Rolf since I saw a retrospective of their work at the Museé de la Mode et du Textile in Paris in 2003. Their latest collection is a real testament to their creativity and sheer brilliance.

Reminiscent of their Fall 2009 Couture show entitled "Russian Doll", Viktor Horsting & Rolf Snoeren joined a lone model (Kristen McMenamy) wearing 10 layers of clothing on a rotating platform in the centre of the catwalk. They then removed each layer one by one, in turn re-dressing each model who entered the catwalk with each individual layer creating an entire show. It completely blew me away and the stills do the spectacle no justice at all. Please when you next have a spare 18 minutes and 49 seconds, watch the full video of the show below, you will not be disappointed. Amazing amazing amazing!
