Format: Hardcover
for anyone not familiar with much of their work before their change in direction for the more commercial,you will thoroughly be astounded by how creative they really have been and can be. from their HC era,in which we saw the infamous layered gown,when model maggie rizer was piled with intricate pieces to form a single,albeit,immobile cocoon gown. to their foray into stars and stripes,black holes and cobalt lovliness in P-A-P. and even earlier than those...this book compiles much of their work since their school days. for me it was really a refreshing reminder of the kind of work they are capable of doing and for that alone this book is extraordinary.

Format: Hardcover
"The House of Viktor and Rolf" is a spectacular, colorful introduction to the Dutch design duo. Their fashion designs are extremely imaginative and campy. It's like a fantasy world brought to life. Together, Viktor and Rolf have designed for dreaming. Their surrealism is revolutionary. It's an enjoyable coffee table book, with a cavalcade of fascinating images.

Format: Hardcover
Their work is spectacular and this book is a dream for anyone who is interested in real High Fashion/extreme Fashion.

Though most of their work is not mainstream, each item is beautifully constructed, detailed and finished.

True innovation.
