True to their theatrical nature, designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren cast members of the Dutch National Ballet to serve as the models for their couture collection.
The ballerinas shuffled across the floor en pointe, wearing draped dresses and leotard hybrids created from specially treated latex.
“We like the idea that you don’t know what’s skin and what’s clothing. We are blurring the lines between the two,” explained the duo after the show. “We wanted latex that was as light and ethereal as chiffon. It needed to be delicate for it to be right for couture. We literally wanted to elevate the whole collection. It’s the whole purpose of haute couture.”
