An innovative design by Viktor & Rolf

Location: Espace Ephémère Tuileries
Joanne Black Style: black Sharon Wauchob dress, Alaia ankle boots and belt and a YSL bag
The collection: Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren’s latest collection was anything but ordinary. With Róisín Murphy singing at the back of the runway while a series of tulle ball gowns – that looked like they’d been attacked with a chainsaw – were modelled, this S/S 2010 show had a definite entertainment factor. As well as the stand out designs – one dress was actually sliced in half – there were some rather more wearable pieces scattered throughout the collection, including a short tux-style jacket with satin shorts and a green and black dress.
The wish list: I am not sure many of their outfits are practical enough to make it beyond the catwalk, but I did love their pastel and teal blue satin and ruffled dress.
The style: REM’s Michael Stipe admired the collection from the front row – just a shame he didn’t put in a performance.
