Dutch fashion designer duo Viktor & Rolf are more artists than clothiers when it comes to couture collections. A big fan of their innovate work, they are one of my favorite subjects about which to blog. For their 2015 Viktor & Rolf Couture collection, they take the term ‘wearable art’ and interpret it literally.

Models paraded down the catwalk sporting what look like framed canvases as gowns, skirts and jackets. Some are plain, as if the artist had not yet painted on the canvas, while others which appear to have abstracted versions of classical romantic subject matter and florals. The angular jutting edges of the gilded wood frames serve to bring structure to the printed textiles.
Several of the pieces are paired with a long sleeved denim keyhole top upon which paint drops are embroidered.
