Roisin Murphy at Viktor&Rolf

Paris fashion week has long since passed but I still find myself humming the tune that Roisin Murphy debuted at the Viktor&Rolf presentation. Perched on a pedestal in back of the runway Roisin rocked the seasons butchered tulle look which perfectly hide her very pregnant shape. She opened the show with "Royal T" and midway through sang "Demon Lover",as the girls came out for a final walk she sang a remixed version of the first song. As for the clothes

"With the credit crunch and everybody cutting back, we decided to cut tulle ball gowns," Snoeren said.The gowns he was talking about came at the end of the show. The skirt of a crystal bustier dress was a solid mass of net ruffles, except for the place where a hole had been tunneled front to back and where the edges were chopped away. Another frock was sliced in half with a good six inches between the top and a bottom that seemed to defy gravity. Truly fabulous both in conception and execution. My personal favorite was the finally gown it was chopped diagonally the tulle a supple and delicate material was made hard and aggressive. These clothes have a museum quality they just scream look at me dissect me, just try and figure me out. Viktor&Rolf have always delivered when it came to concept but as far as desirability this collection is on the money.
