This is a 360 degree turn for a designer who has focused on the futuristic elements during the past collections. The design duo Viktor & Rolf also joined this trend, combining pasty white with earthy tones and architectural drapery. The result is disturbing and radically different doses of glitter and metallic dress eighties style we've seen in other designers.
