Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision

ViktorRolf-Spicebomb-Night-Vision-Visual.jpg

Fashion house Viktor & Rolf, which specialises in creating conceptual and avant-garde designs, was founded in 1993 by Dutch designers Viktor Horsting (born 1969, Geldrop) and Rolf Snoeren (born 1969, Dongen). For more than twenty years Viktor & Rolf have sought to challenge preconceptions of fashion, and bridge the divide between fashion and art. Viktor & Rolf have designed both haute couture ad ready-to-wear collections. The duo is renowned for their avant-garde designs, which rely heavily on theatrical and performative fashion runways. After their graduation in at the famous Arnhem Academy of Art and Design, the pair began working together and relocated to Paris.

Initial collections established the extravagant silhouettes, witty use of materials and irreverent concepts the designers would come to be known for. In 2000, Viktor & Rolf launched their company logo of a wax seal bearing the monogram V&R, and began to devote their artistic talent to ready-to-wear collections. In 2003, the designers launched a Menswear collection which co-existed alongside the women’s line until 2009. In 2015, the designers halted the ready-to-wear production and returned once more to haute couture citing that they wanted to ‘explore the limits of wearability, function and form’. Additionally, like evey respected couture house Viktor & Rolf created some beautiful perfumes: like the female fragrance Flowerbomb (2004) and the male fragrance Antidote (2006), and Spicebomb (launched in 2012), and their flankers.

American fashion designer Calvin Klein releases a new fragrance for men, Encounter. Calvin Klein Encounter is an oriental/woody fragrance captured in an elegant dark blue glass bottle inspiring a modern and stylish man. Even the most demanding men will find this fragrance charming and seductive. Calvin Klein Encounter will mostly delight with its nice yet strong aroma during evening wear.

Encounter by Calvin Klein will be advertised by handsome actor Alexander Skarsgard and gorgeous model Lara Stone. Alexander Skarsgård is riding high due to his spellbinding performance as the alternately smoldering and cold-blooded vampire Eric Northman in the smash HBO hit True Blood. Now Calvin Klein is harnessing the Swedish actor’s sexual energy by making him the face of their newest men’s fragrance, Encounter.

It felt interesting to me. I wanted to be involved with something where you tell a story — even though it’s a short story.

Alexander Skarsgård

He stars in the ad campaign alongside Lara Stone, who has previously worked with Calvin Klein. The dramatically shot, blue-lit campaign shows Skarsgård in the throes of romancing a mysterious woman. It looks how the scent should make you feel — daring.

Although it’s not explicit, there’s no denying the dark and compelling ad takes some inspiration from the actor’s vampiric persona. He is considered by most True Blood fans to be the hottest vampire in Bon Temps. Notes for the new fragrance include mandarin, cardamom and rum in the head; jasmine, cognac and pepper feature in the heart; while the dry down offers musk and cedar.

Encounter will be available in next month.
