Viktor & Rolf Fall 2000 Couture Collection

Published

on

By

Editor’s note: As we feel our way forward in this new world and way of presenting fashion, it seems a good time to revisit Viktor & Rolf’s poetic and perception-altering fall 2000 couture show. Their idea was to embellish clothes with bells. (Their jingles created the “soundtrack.” ) Heard, but not seen, the models progressed through a dense fog, gradually emerging into sight at the end of the runway, creating a sense of mystery. Guests were alerted to their presence first through sound; the visuals followed.

Forget the idea of immediate gratification—the designers instead gifted the audience with the thrill of anticipation, allowing guests time and space to create their own romantic fictions around the fantastic fashions. Here, 21 years later, the story of the collection—as told by Viktor Horsting.

[Looking back at our work], I’m always pleasantly surprised how there are certain themes that keep coming back and that are of interest to us, like the theme of the immaterial; trying to express something beyond the garment itself, something that goes beyond a presentation of a look of the season. That’s a recurring theme. Then I also smile at how naive we were.

We thought that if we started with couture, which is the top of the pyramid of fashion, the pinnacle, we could always go down; but it would be much more difficult the other way around. Obviously we didn’t answer to any of the requirements of the Chambre [Syndical de la Haute Couture] at the time, and still they allowed us on the calendar. It was partly idealistic reasoning starting at the top, and also it was something that we were somehow able to pull off. We did not have the resources to do a ready-to-wear show and ready-to-wear collection, with the production and the distribution and all of that. We didn’t have that, so we thought, ‘Okay, let’s start in couture and then take it from there.’

Best Men’s Exercise Shorts

Published

on

By

Most years, summer signals a return to shorts. My favorite shorts to wear are exercise shorts. They’re comfortable, lightweight, sweat wicking for when it’s hot outside, and I can go right from working at home to exercising in no time. Because this year is the summer of exercise shorts, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to help you find a pair you love, too.

Ten Thousand Session Shorts

The Session Shorts are what shorts should feel like. “After wearing the Session Shorts for a few workouts, I became acutely aware of the flaws all of my other shorts possessed. I began to realize that my older pairs of shorts would leave red marks on my skin, or give me an uncomfortable amount of wedgies (sorry, it’s true). The Session Shorts have fit like a dream from the first time I wore them to the last, and the fabric is soft, durable, sweat wicking, breathable, anti-chafe and odor-free.”

This lightweight short from Lululemon is an excellent option. They have four-way stretch technology, are sweat-wicking, and can come with either a five inch inseam or a seven inch inseam. They are designed for yoga, which means they offer excellent flexibility and range of motion, so you’ll never feel restricted.

Nike makes an excellent pair of shorts. These are specifically designed for running, but they are lightweight and made from a woven fabric with increased breathability and sweat-wicking properties. The soft brief liner provides support where you need it, which is important, whether you’re running or not.
