Viktor&Rolf enchant Aubade

The Dutch designer duo have created a capsule collection with couture accents, Discover it starting this month.

The Designers

They look like twins behind their thick spectacles. Yet Viktor & Rolf are not brothers. For 25 years the pair have been the perfect example of complementarity in the fashion world. Constantly and totally connected, they have created a world which unites the strict cuts and modern, bold poetry.

Although more used to great fashion shows and to voluminous pieces of clothing, the Dutch designer pair immediately accepted Aubade’s somewhat wild idea: going from maxi to mini and diving into the delicate world of lingerie.

« Haute Couture is a think tank of ideas and experiments.There are more restrictions when designing lingerie but that is precisely what appealed to us in this project, maybe because we’re used to expressing ourselves freely and without any restrictions in fashion. »

Viktor&Rolf

« Designing lingerie requires a different type of concentration – you need to think about every single detail, every millimetre, every stitching. In a sens it’s very calming, you really need to devote yourself entirely to it. »

Viktor&Rolf

From ready-to-wear to Haute Couture and their own fragrance, Viktor & Rolf have a symbol: the bow. A main theme which is at the heart of the lingerie collection the Dutch designer pair have imagined for Aubade and which has given it its name: The Bow Collection, La Collection Nœud in French. Highly elegant, this small visual detail is placed like a signature on nine lingerie designs for women and three boxer shorts for men. On its way the bow comes across Viktor & Rolf’s two iconic colours: « Candy » pink and « Evening » black, worked with tulle and soft, fine mesh, on laser-cut embroidery and satin flat bows. Elegant and playful, subtly highlighting curves, these two shades inspire us to mix them in an intense, radiant one-on-one.

« Lingerie is something very personal and intimate », the two designers say. « Wearing nice lingerie makes you feel good about yourself , strong and confident. » Beautiful lingerie, but also comfortable and perfectly cut, as per Aubade’s know-how and requirements for 60 years. In collaboration with the House’s studios, Viktor & Rolf have designed three semi cup bras (one up to 90G and another up to E cup), two triangle bras, a tanga, a Brazilian brief and a lace shorty. As a nod to their fashion background, a top completes the collection. Couture at the highest level of sensuality, grace and femininity.
