01 Feb RE:CYCLE GOES COUTURE
RE:CYCLE – VIKTOR & ROLF X ZALANDO
Viktor&Rolf have collaborated with online fashion Giant Zalando for a capsule collection sourced from fabrics from their own archive – hello New Spring Wardrobe!
RE:CYCLE is available exclusively on zalando.com from February 1st.
Taking Zalando’s overstock fabrics as their starting point, the Dutch designers are breathing new life into what they describe as “forgotten garments”, by reworking circles, diamonds, and shreds on dresses, skirts, and tees. Each piece is unique and in Viktor&Rolf`s haute couture signature.
“With our past haute couture collections, we have explored creative recycling methods: new, artistic ways to re-use elements from the past to create something new. For instance, fabrics from our own archive of 20 years were woven and patch-worked into new materials and volumes; and fragments of existing cocktail and evening wear from the 20th century were surrealistically reassembled to create new, unexpected shapes…”
