The French love a strike. Today there’s one that’s causing traffic pile-ups all over Paris, so you can imagine that the 9am car ride over to Viktor and Rolf—with no time to stop for coffee—was not exactly the best way to start my day. But oh how the tables turned once I (finally) arrived at the show!
First, I had an enormous Starbucks right outside the doors to the show. And, once inside, I discovered I was in store for yet another surprise pick-me-up: a performance by La Roux. The androgynous English electro-pop sensation turned out tunes (though she looked like she could have used a venti latte herself), while the Dutch duo Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren sent out a summery mix of khaki, navy, and black looks, from light-as-a-feather, gentlemanly suiting and evening wear, to layered, casual looks. I’m definitely feeling more awake now.
Check out the photos from the show. Ignore the balding man and focus on the summer looks emerging from the hall.
