Viktor & Rolf Monsieur SS2010
While winter is delivering its best, V&R’s Monsieur gets ready for the coming spring-summer festivities, counting on a sunny and hot season across the north hemisphere . . . and perhaps all over the globe. No matter the occasion, this gentleman is an expert in preparing smart and elegant looks for afternoons in the English dry countryside, his latest and favorite holidays destination.
Expect him to show up impeccable, able to treat both the formal and the informal while adding some spooky tricks. Sometimes teasing his guests with a subtle controlled detail disorder (a shirt carrying a small version of a pocket, usually found in the inside of a tailored jacket…). “Let’s tease together”, but silently he whispers. The smoking-tuxedo blazer has been kindly asked to accept a pleated tailored pant to join brunch time, and they seem to do great together. And if you feel like having additional fun think, “Inside-out”. Brunch is served while traditional underwear details become visible in beautiful tailored pants as elastic waistbands: suddenly, summer has officially arrived . . .
