Inspired by the rehearsal apparel of ballerinas, Viktor&Rolf’s Resort 2015 collection, Bodyworks, takes you from the heart of the performance to the behind the scene confines of the intimate ballet studio.
The collection embodies the element of movement. The active juxtaposition between body conscious and fluid pieces creates an underlying and unexpected elegance. The feminine nature of the collection brings forth the natural shape of the female physique. Layering throughout the collection references the meticulous nature of the ballet wardrobe and engineers this season’s easy silhouette. Single garments give the effect of layering and embellishments add just enough glamour for the collection to be versatile. Swan and feather motifs add a youthful elegance. The contrast of unusual fabric and colour combinations create a bold and unexpected colour palette. These accents of salamander, canary yellow and turquoise counteract the softness of pale lavender, pale yellow, mint and nude.
The collection is complemented by a wide range of accessories that each highlight different facets of the ballerina’s demeanour. This season’s main shoe style is inspired by the classical men’s brogue detailing and features an enlarged laser cut pattern that creates an air of surrealism. Playful colours and material combinations define the luxurious design elements of the accessories which encompass the true feel of the resort collection. The iconic Bombette handbag range continues with the introduction of the newest member of the Bombette family – the Baby Bombette – a small and delicate declination, essential for summer.
