During the Paris Fashion Week 2015, Viktor & Rolf presented dresses with ‘floral patterns and appliqu├ęd petals’ , inspired by the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh. Models also adorned lots of straw and wheat, evoking the luscious French fields he loved to paint.

The fabrics were wax-dyed and block-printed using a batik technique by Dutch fabric company Vlisco, better known in Africa than in Europe for its very colourful fabrics.

Art collector Han Nefkens has acquired three of the pieces for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
