The Viktor & Rolf Fall 2011 collection highlights these futuristic felt coats strutted down the runway by red-faced models. A fantastic black ultramodern version of the origami-inspired jackets has structured folds and pleats starting at the collar and traveling the length of the arms to the wrists.
Another style modeled in both black and a wonderful winter white wool felt flaunts avant-garde pinwheel-like formations on the shoulders. The folds along the V-shaped front are stunning, sweeping open just below the austere belt with their concealed fasteners.
Teamed with Viktor & Rolf equestrian-styled leggings, black-and-red-striped trousers and ribbed zip-up sweaters, the futuristic edge is brought back down to earth and the collection is to some extent as advertised -- ready to wear!
