Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture AW21 ‘The New Royals’

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The Viktor&Rolf Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2021 collection is inspired by the new generation of royals and their attempt to show a human reality behind the facade of an institution. Fashion, like the monarchy has its own hierarchy, its courts, its power alliances and its Kings and Queens. The world is obsessed with royalty, perhaps even more so than with fashion. Both require putting on a show, and this show must always go on, no matter what.
