Another proud and exciting day to be Dutch.
Our best fashion export: the brilliant Viktor and Rolf launched their fist pre-fall collection. My pride and excitement however are slightly clouded by lust and envy, because ever since my favorite fashion houses began to bring out pre-fall collections, i keep being confronted by a dozen or two more looks that i can not afford with my limited bugdet. On the other hand, the visuals themselves bring inspiration and squee’s of fashion joy and those always do a girl good.
Presenting 25 classic-but never boring looks with that typical V&R eye wink to the slightly quirky; playing with volume of sleeves here and there, this is a pre-fall collection afterall, so there’s nothing too crazy or daring. Still i was surprisingly inspired by this collection!! It has the wearibility and feminine apeal of their h&m collection, but is aimed more at a more grown up proffesional woman. Inspiration comes from a 70s photo of a Russian girl. The Soviet grey-tones mixed with the inevitable late 60s early 70s flair are very visable.. as well as reoccuring long leather gloves and pastel colored flower patterns mixed with tan leather shoes and belts.(*insert squee of fashion joy here*)
Fact: this is not the first time one of their collections has a Russian link, their 1999 f/w collection was called “Russian doll”.
