i really loved going through this collection from viktor & rolf for spring-summer 2016. we have all seen work inspired by cubist picasso a million times, but this one felt kind of different and fresh to me. i love the progression of the pieces and that the starting point is a little white dress. each piece stretches the reference a bit further, making the models less and less visible and increasingly more of a vehicle for these moving sculptures they've created.
the other interesting thing is that cubism is inherently not about "pretty." it's about asymmetry (which the eye often finds confusing AKA ugly) and disrupting the peace by breaking up the pieces and throwing them around. the cool thing about this interpretation, however, is that it feels light and really beautiful.
