Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” and Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” remade coolly by Joan as Police Woman, played on Viktor & Rolf’s spring soundtrack. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren couldn’t have picked a more suitable music mix: They worked a rebel schoolgirl theme with playful charm for spring.
The designers deconstructed the classic school uniform — navy blazer, crisp white shirt and pleated skirt — in myriad ways. Some were more tame — the navy jacket with a school badge and white piping — others, more experimental, i.e., an asymmetric dress, its bodice made of half a jacket.
Skirts with bold geometric pleats flirted with the designers’ more eccentric leanings. Those looks aside, this season favored a more commercial appeal, with a contemporary touch.
The standout — a fun graffiti T-shirt with a silver-studded collar, teamed with Bermuda shorts — demonstrated a punkish streak. The headmaster better look the other way.
