On the ground in Paris, Buro 24/7's Roza Sinaysky goes backstage at Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Spring/Summer 14, with exclusive images and interview with the Dutch designer duo

Tell us about the thought process behind this collection...
This collection was the erosion of boundaries between a woman and her clothes. All dresses have been made ​​of latex to therefore feel like a second skin. Plus, we are releasing a new fragrance called 'BonBon', and this is a launch that also fits perfectly into the concept. After all, before you put on the dress, the woman applies her perfume – we wanted to really explore this idea.

How did you select models for the show? 

Well, movement was an important element of the collection, so we decided not to use traditional models and instead selected professional dancers from the National Ballet of the Netherlands. They flew to Paris specifically for our show, and we were very pleased to work with such talented compatriots. 

 

Do you prefer to work back in The Netherlands?  
Of course Paris is our 'fashion home', where we show all collections, but we love to go back home to Holland. There you can really focus on the job, for us it is a very peaceful and inspiring place.

You frequently use very alternative fabrication for your collections. How do you make it wearable?
As we mentioned, this time we decided to work with latex, but made ​​it absolutely wearable in its cut – this is done via simple dress silhouettes, playing up the idea of clothing as a second skin. So to create an outfit using any thing from this collection means simply picking out cute shoes.
