Viktor & Rolf
's inspiration for their Spring '14 men's collection was a rebel schoolboy, so for their Resort womenswear range arriving alongside it, they imagined a schoolgirl
. "Fresh, young, and sculptural," is how the duo described it, a sweet bit of nostalgia for a pair loping headlong into the future, with a new Paris boutique opening in the Fall and a renewed spot on the Paris couture calendar this week. Their schoolgirl—played to a T, for lookbook purposes, by the dewy Magdalena Jasek—wears snug little tailored jackets, knee-length shorts, and pleated skirts. But her white school-uniform shirts also came in longer dress versions (and, for the schoolgirl grown-up, a full-length white wedding dress version from the new bridal capsule Viktor & Rolf Marriage). Ruffles in bonded crepe provided the sculptural bit, but despite V&R's well-known predilection for frills, it was the more tomboyish tops and trousers that felt freshest.
