In their latest couture collection called Wearable Art, Viktor & Rolf tackle the age-old question of whether fashion qualifies as art by challenging our preconceptions on whether the works should hang on a wall or clothe a female body. Clearly,  believe that we shouldn’t have to chose, and that fashion could be both.

Unfolding within a gallery at the Palais de Tokyo, the duo demonstrated the before and after of their fashion folly—how the integration of hinged frames on coats, dresses, and capes could transform the designs from outfits into physical artworks. During the show, the designers doubled as performance artists, systematically unfastening their works from a series of models and hanging them on the wall.

While these outfits aren’t quite what one would wear to a servo to buy milk and toilet paper (because that’s the brief I set for all my fashion purchases, given that late night visits to a servo are a regular event in my life – NOT!) one cannot deny that this is pure genius in terms of conceptual thinking and execution. 10 points from me!
