For the Spring/Summer 2016 Haute Couture show presented in Paris last week, Viktor&Rolf further explored the notion of ‘Wearable Art’ with a surreal mix of sculpture and clothing.

The collection, inspired by Cubism and Pablo Picasso, consisted of a series of form where clothing and sculptural elements interacted with an increasing degree of complexity. The designs blur the boundaries between garment and sculpture, and question the relationship between wearer and clothing, sometimes overtaking the body and obscuring the face of the wearer.
