With Mister Mister, Viktor&Rolf introduce a new creative expression to their brand universe. Conveying the designer’s complementary bond, Viktor&Rolf Mister Mister is an extension of fashion artists’ Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s personal style – an intimate reflection, understated yet cleverly detailed with a myriad of textured patchworks and prints.
The collection embraces the modern dandy as a form of self-expression. Through a mingling of impeccable tailoring with casual wear, Viktor&Rolf Mister Mister crafts a playful take on formal wear. Homage is paid to an underlying sense of humour and irony through quirky conversational prints inspired by dandy narratives. Various top hats, either blown up or in micro patterns, executed in jacquards and trompe-l’oeil techniques, create a visual background that inspire dialogue amongst themselves.
Classic suits are crafted in playful patterns and casual garments feature formal detailing. Prints and patchworks give way to standout details, with several patchworks throughout the collection crafted with leftover materials hinting to the brand’s recent Haute Couture collections that have placed an emphasis on the designer’s notion of conscious design.
This season’s vibrant colour pallet is infused with classic masculine tones, highlighting the
fresh accent ‘Winter blue’. Classic dandy pieces are defined by unexpected twists in detail such as tuxedo jackets that are finished with raw edges or men’s shirts that are adorned with asymmetric patchworks. The collection consists of around 130 pieces – from shirts and knits to formalwear, outerwear and accessories.
With Mister Mister, Viktor&Rolf enter into a worldwide licensing and production partnership with Shiffon Co., Ltd. based in Tokyo, Japan.
