Called Wild Romance, this collection from Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren is a play on contrast between the romantic (bows, ruffles) and wild (animal prints, reptilian motifs). Macro croc looks in silk jacquard were worked on full-skirted trenches and dresses as well as textured knitwear, while the bows were intricately incorporated into the patterns of long skirts, dresses and shirts; giant ruffles were more dramatic, adding volume to, for instance, the shoulders of a white cotton shirt and a little black leather motorcycle jacket.

The tailoring also played against opposites: fluid — shawl collars, soft shoulders — or sharp, with constructed silhouettes and peak shoulders.

The Bombette handbag, named after the flower bomb motif of the designers’ fragrance, was introduced. With miniature hand-grenade metallic details, it was shown in four different styles, from clutch to tote.
