The House of Viktor & Rolf

Caroline Evans and Susannah Frankel

Famed for their high-concept catwalk shows and extravagant collections, the radical Dutch design duo Viktor & Rolf have taken the fashion world by storm over the last 15 years. This sumptuously produced book is the most comprehensive exploration of Viktor & Rolf’s work to date, and includes an essay by the fashion historian Caroline Evans, an interview with the designers, a detailed biography and perceptive texts on each collection. Particular attention is given to signature looks from such collections as 'Atomic Bomb' and 'Russian Doll', which showcase the duo’s unique blend of cool irony and surreal beauty. Featuring style shots by some of the world’s most celebrated photographers, catwalk images, behind-the-scenes snapshots and portraits, The House of Viktor & Rolf is a stunning tribute to two of the most original designers in haute couture.
