Since announcing that they were starting up their couture business again, Viktor&Rolf Monsieur has been relegated to static presentations. However, that doesn't mean the duo's menswear collection has suffered because of it. On the contrary, since they are able to more fully explore their creative limits in their couture line, the Monsieur line has also experienced a flush of creativity. Take their FW14 collection: strong, masculine tailoring was softened quite literally by soft fabrics, like a short puffer with a white stripe that announced "Monsieur". The collegiate vibe from the collection instantly made it feel more fresh and youthful while simple but effective piping on lapels, jackets and coats added something special without going over the top.
