PARIS — Dutch fashion designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have poured their latest women’s fragrance into a striking bottled shaped like a bow — a potent symbol of haute couture.
Called Bonbon, it was unveiled at the conclusion of their spring couture show here on Wednesday night — a choreographed fashion spectacle featuring Dutch National Ballet dancers walking en pointe in flesh-toned latex dresses hand-painted with birds, butterflies, ribbons and plenty of bows.
