Valentine’s love from Viktor & Rolf

It’s almost February – the season of love. You know what that means? Love notes, love letters and in the case of Mr. Big from Sex and the City, love faxes are being signed, sealed and delivered! Paris Fashion Week just came to a sweet end and EVERYONE is talking about Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s brilliant and gush-worthy collection of of “fashion statements.” So, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, don’t bother with a love note, love letter or love fax (does anyone fax anymore these days?). Instead, gift me with one of these gorgeous gowns!

There are people in this world who have the ability to say the things that everyone is thinking, but maybe too afraid to say it. When they say it, that sigh of relief is of sweet bliss like no other; something you only experience every now and then. Sometimes they are with words and sometimes they are through fashion statements (which is ironically what the collection was called). Ladies and gentlemen, Viktor & Rolf did just THAT!

Vogue states: “altogether, the collection showcased Viktor & Rolf in the brand’s finest, sweet-meets-sinister form. As a fashion statement, it was ironic in attitude; historically inspired and Pop in presentation; detail obsessed and sophisticated in execution.” (Vogue). 

Runway shows have transformed from tradition. These days, designers focus on debuting a collection through more than just the cat-walk. This can either take away from the clothing or add to it. While I love this modern take on a runway show, Viktor & Rolf didn’t need to put on a spectacle. All they needed was the clothes. AND THAT IS FASHION! Their collection did all the talking, LITERALLY.

Since we did mention Valentine’s Day earlier, our girls at Designer Swap want to make sure that you look and feel your best no matter who you’re celebrating it with. You can find the best of designer both in store and online. 

When I think Valentine’s Day, all I see are the colours red and pink (with a dash of hearts and a sprinkle of the word love). Below are two bags on the shop section of the website that scream “hearts” (well, heart-eyes) and “love.”

1.    Chanel | Large Coco Ming Vinyl Bag

2.    Celine | Medium Luggage Phantom
