ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Dutch design duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren of the edgy label Viktor & Rolf presented an unfettered and monochromatic collection for Autumn/Winter 2013 on Saturday (March 2) during Paris Fashion Week. It was a departure from Viktor & Rolf's past collections, which were recognized by their elaborate theatrics and sartorial complexities. The opening looks were surprisingly simple and minimalistic- there were tailored shirts and miniskirts with low-slung hip belts in a graphic black and white palette. Viktor & Rolf is known for its dexterity in deconstructing fragile fabrics like tulle and chiffon and the shirts, jackets and pants that appeared ripped and slashed was actually achieved through pain-staking hand embroidery. Paris is the final leg of the international Fashion Week whirlwind, following New York, London and Milan and runs from February 26 to March 6.
