Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have really put together a beautiful collection if you can get past the distraction of the red face-painted models. I note that the Nicole Phelps at wasn't particularly impressed with the theme of the Middle Ages that the duo seemed to take on. Whilst this may not be the most endearing and wearable theme to base a collection on, it certainly allowed them to show off their tailoring, creativity and highly-constructed fashion prowess. What gave the collection such a powerful aesthetic was the combination of the stiff (and sometimes soft) fabrics with the geometric and circular style protruding pieces. Also, noted is the collection's simple dedication to red, white/cream, black and grey. This is definitely a collection (especially the trench coats) for the confident modern woman who wants to make a statement, be slightly edgy, very luxurious and a little bit sexy - just don't walk out the door with a red face.
