Viktor&Rolf will be featuring in the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, with designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, the avant-garde design duo behind the Dutch label, showcasing their archives from the past 20 years.
Titled 'Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists,' the exhibit opens this October, and will explore the label's unique notion wearable art.
It is an offbeat, perhaps rebellious, approach to fashion, executed with a technical prowess that sets them apart in the industry.
The show will feature some of the house's most innovative pieces, including over 35 haute couture pieces from the designers' collections, earlier designs from the Viktor&Rolf archive and international museum collections.
Since forming their artistic partnership in 1992, Horsting and Snoeren have crafted a contradictory identity that pushes the boundaries between art and fashion, often resulting in controversial larger-than-life creations. They are famous for their experimental runway shows, especially with their recent inclusion into the Haute Couture Week schedule in Paris.
'Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists' runs from 21 October 2016 to 26 February 2017.
