Atelier Swarovski by Viktor&Rolf / UK

Brand Information

Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren founded their avant-garde design house after graduating from the Arnhem Academy of Art and Design in 1992, and showed their first couture collection in Spring/Summer 1998.

Displaying an unconventional approach to craftsmanship based on playing with scale and proportion, Viktor&Rolf quickly gained respect for its provocative and conceptual glamour. Having initially focused on womenswear, the duo debuted menswear in Fall/Winter 2003 with the sophisticated and ironic Monsieur collections. Today, complementary lifestyle products also feature, including luxurious accessories, eyewear and fragrances. At the core of everything the designers create lies the aspiration to create spectacular beauty and unexpected elegance.


Inspiration

Viktor&Rolf have followed up their Fall/Winter 2014 Velvet Rock and Frozen Crystals collections with the Red Velvet Rock, a striking new colorway first previewed at their haute couture show in July 2014. Flocked in red velvet and set with sparkling crystals, the pieces join the existing Atelier Swarovski by Viktor&Rolf range in chic gray and black velvet flocking. Their new red carpet-themed collection is inspired by "a meditation on a contemporary obsession”, reappearing on red carpets the world over. The designers considered how dresses and matching Atelier Swarovski jewelry might look if they were actually made from red carpet, commenting: “No red carpet is complete without the matching jewels”.
