At Viktor & Rolf Show, Wearable Lights Outshine Clothes Rachel Dodes Viktor & Rolf, the Dutch design duo known more for their runway theatrics than their clothes, presented a typically unusual collection in Paris tonight. Models slowly sauntered down the runway in oversized garments such as a dress with a five-foot-wide collar that hung from scaffolding anchored to the models bodies. Atop the metal poles were klieg lights and speakers, which blasted everything from classical music to Justin Timberlake. The presentation appeared to suggest that each model was a self-contained fashion show, with her own lights, her own music, and clothes, of course. I was just trying to stay balanced, said model Solange Wilvert, who slowly made her way down the runway in a dress suspended from the poles that appeared to emerge from her back. Although model Jessica Stam couldnt help but crack a smile, Ms. Wilvert said she maintained her poker face by thinking of her shoeshigh heeled wooden clogs. The show illustrated what many fashion insiders already know: fashion shows are more about entertainment than clothes. Last season, Viktor & Rolf, with the financial help of its perfume licensee LOreal SA, staged a more elaborate production, with dancing men in tuxes and tails, dry ice and a 20 piece orchestra led by Rufus Wainwright. The company has been capitalizing on its runway buzz to sell other products, like a capsule collection for H&M that sold out in one day. The designers, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, sent a tux to Ellen DeGeneres to wear to the Oscars last night. To no avail: She selected a red velvet suit by Gucci instead.
