The famous fashion designers duet is now the source of another amazing gift, perfect for people celebrating in the name of style and fantasy. Who wouldn’t expect that the men who have created numerous fairytale outfits, would at some point put their imaginative world into words? I just received an impressive press release and I am copying as follows:
Viktor & Rolf are widely recognized for their provocative couture and conceptual glamour. Now they have produced a stylish collection with a difference – a book of FAIRY TALES that illustrates their beautifully surreal universe.
With enchanting illustrations, also by Viktor & Rolf, FAIRY TALES contains 12 original stories featuring memorable characters such as the lonely Disco Hedgehog, and the marvellous Little Dragon Butterfly. You’ll delight at the tales of the pampered Princess Giselle in The Golden Dress; of Princess Shanilla in The Fifth Perfume Bottle and of the transformational magic behind Flowerbomb.
Smart and chic in design and content, FAIRY TALES is the perfect gift for curious minds of all ages, fashionistas and those who dare to be different.
About the authors: After their graduation from the Arnhem Academy of Art and Design in 1992, designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren founded their avant-garde fashion house, Viktor&Rolf. Viktor & Rolf have staged their signature collections at spectacular shows in Paris for nearly twenty years while their fashion label has grown worldwide. At their core, is the aspiration to create spectacular beauty and unexpected elegance.
Published by Hardie Grant, FAIRY TALES will be available from October 2011.
