Viktor & Rolf Are In The NGV And It’s Made 2016
Sometimes people just have the magical touch, people who revolutionise, who inspire and who have such a presence, you wouldn’t dream of being in the same room as them, but that’s where many people found themselves at the opening of Viktor and Rolf’s new exhibition at NGV, with the installations and exhibitions launched by the two iconic figures themselves.
The launch of their new exhibition curated by a fashion lover and art himself Thierry-Maxime Loriot. The installations feature works from Viktor and Rolf’s early days to the current iconic pieces and articles. The gentlemen of the fashion and art world, started their launch with a small talk about where they came from, and how these two men became the successes they are now. Their talk ended with imparting advice that struck a chord with many in the room, they both said the key to being a creative is following your own path, being authentic and to be different.
The actual exhibition itself is multi layered and intricate, with different exhibition rooms displaying different collections, with rooms not set up in the chronological order of their works however were group based on styles and pretences behind the specific collections. Featuring works from their 2008, NO collection to their Flowerbomb collection.
A wonderfully fascinating and slightly unusual element of the exhibition is the placement of miniature dolls, who are dressed up in accurate pieces from their collection, the dresses and pieces are scaled to size, and the dolls are made up exactly how the models were during the show they were featured in, they are so intricate and detailed, you get over their slight unsettling nature. The exhibition houses 24 of the dolls, half of the number of dolls that Viktor and Rolf own, these dolls are a way in which some of the pieces can be exhibited without bringing entire collections.
You don’t have to know haute couture, fashion or the art world to appreciate Viktor and Rolf’s installations but this collection will excite, inspire and entertain everyone. It features a children’s room made to inspire the next generation of designers, along with the other spaces. The exhibition opened to the public on Friday the 21st of October and will be open till February 26th, this is not an exhibition to miss, those who are lovers of art and fashion, and those who appreciate innovation and revolutionary ideas will come away from the space inspired to create for themselves.
