Viktor & Rolf

ViktorRolf1

With their surreal and hauntingly beautiful take on fashion design, Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf present this startling 15-year retrospective of their most innovative work. This theatre-like installation is the first time the designers have exhibited in the UK, so as lovers of innovative and surprising experiences, ‘i-am’ really recommend taking a peek into Viktor & Rolf’s darkly glamorous parallel world of couture. Central to the exhibition is a gigantic yet graceful dollshouse (‘The House of Viktor and Rolf’), featuring inhabitants dressed in exact replicas of the designers’ most innovative creations. This utterly compelling collision of high-fashion and Alice in Wonderland theatrics is exhibiting until 21st September, and you’d be as mad as a hatter to miss out. www.barbican.org.uk / www.viktor-rolf.com
