Colorless Craft


For Viktor & Rolf’s AW 2013 fashion show in Paris, designer couple Studio Job created a dramatic backdrop, all in greyscale. With simply a briefing to create “something with flowers,” the duo created a William Morris-inspired wallpaper pattern of flowing, wilting flowers. ┬áThe runway was turned into a grey and white illustrated parquet wood floor, and the bleachers and steps lining it were covered in solid black, adding to the elegant drama. With Vicktor & Rolf’s entirely black and white line, the only hint of color in the show came in pairs of patent reddish-brown shoes on a few models.
