Dutch duo Viktor & Rolf have just announced that they will be returning to the Haute Couture schedule. The design house joins Giambattista Valli, Elie Saab, Valentino, Versace and Armani as a Correspondent Member in the Haute Couture schedule, an honour which is reserved for foreign couturiers.
The pair last showed couture in 1999, following a ready-to-wear ‘strike’ that they actioned in 1996 after feeling the pressure of creating a new ready-to-wear collection every six months. They returned to ready-to-wear in 2000 after receiving rave reviews for their couture pieces and wishing to boost the brand’s income.
