It has been awhile since anything on the runways has really made my heart strings play a pretty little tune. At first glance, these vampiric inspired images from the Viktor & Rolf Pre-Fall 2012 collection made me hesitate, but some of their silhouettes caught my eye and eventually I took a closer look... and thank goodness I did!
I am so completely in love with all of these pieces. Completely. Head to toe, want everything. The 1930s shapes are just stunning, I love the Victorian accents like the high necked blouses, the ruffles! Oh God those ruffles! The colors, the fabrics, the draping... perhaps I could do without the full moon backdrop, but it definitely lends a mythical and dark appeal to the collection.
Oh my goodness, every time I look at these clothes I just die a little inside because I could never afford these pieces without putting a huge dent in my bank account. I have never with any designer even considered plunking hundreds upon hundreds for one garment (for vintage, sure, for modern day designs...eh, not really).
I am dying over the brown dress with polka dot sheer panel in the front and the bow. Dying over it. Such an amazing collection!
