Single shade of grey

Viktor & Rolf are known for sticking to the theme in their fashion collections and featuring an almost all-grey palette, their autumn winter 2014 collection is no exception.

After covering their Paris flagship store entirely in charcoal felt, the hue played a leading role in the duo’s latest collection as look after look treaded the catwalk in the non-colour.

The grey sweater has become an understated staple in the wardrobe of any fashion insider as it can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. Viktor & Rolf took the simple garment and showed how it could be manipulated into any item of clothing they pleased.

Starting the show with a-symmetrical smock dresses, the collection featured a new take on preppy with boxy jackets, tailored and twin sets. Materials such as felt and chiffon were combined to create a daring yet sophisticated look. Cable knits were featured both in wool as in a trompe l’oeil print on the garments. The graphic design also featured in other ways; mocking an elegant dress, twin set or hint of cleavage.

The sweater itself featured heavily, either embellished or with a peplum, sometimes in a print. The only two other colours that could be discerned were a vibrant pink and sky blue, yet always combined with the same mid-range grey. 

To the end, the looks turned somewhat more towards grunge, although keeping their high-class look with ankle-length dresses in velvet and chiffon combined with sharply-cut leather jackets and pony hair boots.

The set was designed once again by Studio Job and featured a tarmac road complete white markings and with street lighting. Entitled Highway to Hell the road turned into an entangled design to the rear of the catwalk.
