Wildness movie poster collaboration between Wu Tsang and Familiar, 2012.
Viktor & Rolf presented their Fall/Winter '12 collection in Paris on Saturday and the Dutch duo did not hold back. While there were many pieces from the collection we liked--flowy jumpsuits and sheer blouses with sequined pockets and collars--and others not so much--fur cut-out dresses, for starters--it was the staging that really stood out. With a resplendent moon looking out over the windy runway, models casting distorted shadows behind a screen before emerging onto the catwalk, and wolf noises accompanying the music, the whole effect was a very haute-Grimm's fairytale. And keep your ears out for the ornery photogs yelling "boo" in the background when the models don't come close enough to the photo pit.
