Red Carpet Dressing Victor & Rolf Style
When you have seen just about Red Carpet to last a life-time, you will be surprised to see the Viktor and Rolf red carpet, which is, you guessed it made entirely from Red Carpet. Some of the pieces appear as if they have been draped over the simple, flexible, simplistic, yet strong and powerful, but the skin and hair were pure, very delicate and natural.
The items have a subtle delicateness to them, which are inspired by the clean foundation of this joyous, primitive, experimental idea house.
The Viktor and Rolf make this line to a testament of a search to why things are the way they are. The clean and simplistic beauty of the line is also slightly ironic given its paradoxical reflection of the red carpet sounds of yelling and clapping, and it is this clapping that is used to stimulate the audience and accentuate the primate style of tribal and ceremonial gatherings.
This far-reaching epochal obsession that plague Viktor and Rolf make them question the idea of animal prints as couture, and to look at why the red carpet is so special, with such questions as: “Why is this?”
It makes the viewer question our current social reflections through fashion as a mode of representation, and how individuals use fashion to present themselves for various occasions. The representations may be based on the stereotypes or expectations, and sometimes the individual has a choice to make a fashion statement or not, and has an option to either conform or rebel against these stereotypes, thus, adding a mysterious element to the intent of the wearer — whether there is a hidden message in the style?
With this form of power and expression, people can either blend, stand out, and send powerful signals through the brands they choose, and the items they wear. The use of red carpet as a signifier in this video is a perfect example of how we can compare a social event dedicated to a an object with perceived expectations of style for the occasion. Most red carpet dressers wear their best outfit, but for those what want to truly get in the spirit of red carpet dressing, the Viktor and Rolf style is to pull off a piece of carpet at the event and drape yourself in it. Will this be the next Red Carpet showstopper? What kind of wardrobe malfunctions would does this style lend it to? We will just have to wait and see if Rolf and Victor Red Carpet dressing gets adopted. Until next time, stay fashionable!
