News__ VIKTOR AND ROLF TELL STORIES

Enter the magical world from which Viktor and Rolf create

Dutch design duo, Viktor and Rolf embark on a new project--a pastime endeavor gone serious. But it isn’t another perfume line, or anything like that. It’s a Book of Fairy Tales, written and illustrated by the two. Meet Disco Hedgehog, Little Dragon Butterfly, Princess Giselle in The Golden Dress, and Princess Shanilla in the Fifth Perfume Bottle. They live in a universe of high contrast black-and-white, enchantment and irony. And each of the twelve stories wrap up with a Brothers Grimm-like moral lesson.

Their artistic vision carries over well into illustrated format--maybe because their dramatic designs transfer over easily into stories. Though, the one lesson which becomes clear is, expression is yours, whichever way you put it, whether in a book or as a dress.
