Viktor & Rolf team up with Swarovski

27 November 2008


Design duo Viktor & Rolf are known for their artistic , quirky designs - like  their SS07 collection that saw models walking down the catwalk wearing their own scaffolding, lights and music. Now, on a more restrained yet equally extravagant note,  Viktor & Rolf have collaborated with Atelier Swarovski for their SS09 collection to  create jaw-dropping jewellery and three made-to-order dresses. Each dress is encrusted with 20,000 crystals each weighing a whopping 15kg! The "black hole" crystal - a Swarovski crystal was covered in black matte paint - has been specially developed for the duo,  paying homage to our favourite Viktor and Rolf black hole collection (the entire collection was black, and even the models were painted en noir !). Just one model was used to film the entire SS09 catwalk show taking a mega 14 days to shoot.  Check it out here.
