Inside The House of Viktor & Rolf

Opening the doors and allowing the public inside their world, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren invite us inside the house of Viktor & Rolf for a rare glimpse behind the scenes. Filmed live during the final week of the exhibition 'The House of Viktor & Rolf' at London's Barbican Gallery, this exclusive footage records an interview between Viktor & Rolf and Penny Martin, and three symposium presentations from José Teunissen, Dr. Ulrich Lehmann and Judith Clark, exploring the concepts behind the designers' inspirations, their creations and the exhibition itself. To complete the project, we have a video of Viktor & Rolf's Spring/Summer '09 collection 'Funny Face,' proposing Viktor & Rolf's vision of a 'fashion show of the future' and shown wholly online during Paris Fashion Week in October 2008. Not simply an online movie but a fashion show created in and for the Internet, the presentation collides both fashion reality with surreal fantasy, and couture elitism with the distinctly egalitarian medium of the World Wide Web.

    As happens in the art field: there are so few talk about the works exhibited, than when it happens we as the public, are amazed. Please, more interviews, more talks, more comments. Fashion needs it!

    I do think their show video could have been better though.

    Who says ' fashion and politics ' don't mix ?
    By the way I can't stop going back visually to this Capitano Spavento by Gareth Pugh every time I see those graphics in their collection .... inspiration... inspiration .... inspiration !
