VIKTOR & ROLF X LA ROUX
We all know La Roux as the androgynous pop songstress behind "In For The Kill" etc, etc, but recently she has been unveiled as the muse for fashion house Viktor & Rolf. I can see why though as her style is eclectic, 80's punk, new romantic and occaisionally Disco-glam, but at the end of the day it is all a bit masculine isnt it? She perfomed at Viktor & Rolf's Paris Menswear Spring/Summer 2011 show looking rather dashing and suitably attired in the designer's sharp new cuts. La Roux was quoted,"Fashion and music have always gone hand-in-hand and this was an opportunity to do something different with the songs and in a completely different setting. "It was very intimate and very exposed. There was a real sense of two creative worlds coming together."
I have always liked Viktor & Rolf and this isnt their best collection but I can see the concept behind this line. I dont dislike it, some pieces are practical and wearable and the cuts are spot on but I think are there many men who would say they would like to dress like La Roux?
