Viktor & Rolf Mariage Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
Represented by KARLA OTTO.
Mariage Spring/Summer 2020 is an exploration of spectacular beauty characterised by the mingling of signature masculine and feminine elements. The curated offering of dramatic ball gowns, elegant columns, flirty minis and tailored creations present Viktor&Rolf’s singular approach to bridalwear, where the garments are reinterpreted into statement pieces with a surreal Viktor&Rolf twist.
This season offers an elaborate selection of feminine silhouettes adorned with bold stud and crystal embroideries, sculpturally draped constructions, and an abundance of intricate broderie anglaise flowers cascading down the gowns. Signature sculptural creations are infused with feminine and masculine motifs and an evolution of Viktor&Rolf’s signature tulle ruffle artworks. New fabrics such as lurex jersey, shiny mikado and tulle are introduced that bring a lightness to the entire Mariage collection.

The emphasis is placed on the décolleté detailing, featuring bejeweled illusion necklines with elegant and sheer ruffle layering, off-the-shoulder necklines that wrap around the back, scallop shaped collars and sculptural draped sweethearts. This season explores tulle ruffle techniques and outstanding sculptural draped roses.
The highlight of the season is the introduction of separates into the collection, presenting the outspoken Viktor&Rolf take on the bridal suit.
The collection is produced in partnership with Justin Alexander, an international bridalwear designer and manufacturer.
