Viktor & Rolf Men's RTW Fall 2010 / PFW-Day01

Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s runway debut was a flawless orchestration of sophistication and youth; formality and sport; fun and restraint. Their “Paint It Black” theme hit fashion paydirt via an inky palette, black glitter, nifty painted effects and fetching shadow patterns.

A live singer, covering The Rolling Stones’ ditty with acoustic backing, heightened an intimate, gracious atmosphere and opened the Paris week on an electrifying note.

How refreshing it was to see young men looking elegant – and not old-fashioned - in structured blazers, evening jackets and carrot-shaped pants with banded hems.

The biggest surprise was the prevalence of knits in artful layers and proportions that made everything seem extended and a bit cozier. By the looks of it, this brand is finally poised for a commercial presence on par with its creative mojo.
