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.
This month, a new version of the iconic masculine scent from Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb (launched is 2012) will be launched. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision is the first flanker since the Spicebomb Extreme edition from 2015.
Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision is all about a classic and elegant aroma, long-lasting and truly seductive. Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision is an explosive contrast of green freshness and dark spices. It’s a very sensual fragrance, powerful and alluring, it is designed for night time. Darkness and mystery are new themes that are introduced to the line of this flanker.
The man we envision wearing Spicebomb Night Vision is daring – he is eager to be seen and desired.
