At the start of the fall 2013 Viktor and Rolf couture show—the brand’s first in 13 years—designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren walked out onto the mock Japanese garden runway and proceeded to meditate under a spotlight for five minutes as the audience watched. When the show began, models walked and arranged themselves in various zen formations; their all-black ensembles adjusted by the designers on the runway to transform them into human rocks. This final look from the collection was outfitted with a black fringe cape, which was meant to resemble grass. This revealing collared crop top paired with a mini skirt and flat sandals immediately stood among the conservative, geometric collection—and we’re pretty sure it will stand out at our next black and white ball, too.
