Obviously the appreciation of beautiful things is a universal pleasure, but today's posts (yes, posts, plural!) are specifically a gift to everyone out there who is currently stressing out over the US election results. I'm not even American, and I still feel tense about it. So as a balm to everyone's nerves as we try to ignore the grim horrors of a 24-hour news cycle with nothing to report on until tomorrow, here are some pretty things to look at:
Viktor & Rolf
Introducing a far softer look than in previous seasons, Viktor & Rolf have decided to take inspiration from the glamour of 1940s evening gowns. There were still hints of the old V & R in the form of metallic fabrics (reminiscent of their many robot-like designs in past years) and shoulder-pads, but both were seamlessly incorporated into the overall vintage look.
Part 2: Yohji Yamamoto.
