Ready To Wear Menswear: Viktor & Rolf edition

We’ll be rolling out a designer-a-day to cover Ready To Wear menswear for Spring 2011 (2011. Wow. That feels so futuristic to write). Today, it’s Viktor & Rolf, who were inspired by Hollywood’s leading movie men of the 1940’s. Handsome, stoutly, dressed to kill stars like Clark Gable, William Wyler, John Garfield and Humphrey Bogart. These men matched their leading ladies with tailored three piece suits (Fedoras!), two tone wing-tip shoes and accessorized with handkerchiefs and pomade-perfect coifs (Dad still talks fondly about Brylcreem). With a focus on cream, off-white and caramel tones, Viktor & Rolf gives us their interpretation of the 40’s suit with single-button, collarless blazers and pairs them with slacks and trouser style shorts (trousers seem to be making a huge comeback this summer with both genders).

Enjoy the movie stars, V&R’s collection and pieces from us to get your very own Gable and Bogart on. So classy…
