Viktor & Rolf runways are never short on spectacular, delivering models attached to light apparatuses one year, Harlequin romance the next. But this year, Fall '11 is a battlefield for the design duo, who delivered a collection of red-faced warriors, outfitted in fierce metallics and bold volume. Clothing that's reminiscent of armor with stiff pleats, bold shoulders, and a sharp black, red, white, and silver palette that reads like a coat of arms. It's part medieval, then totally modern in volume and proportion, begging for fearless fashion fans like Gaga to try it on.
