Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren met while majoring in fashion design at Arnhem Academy of Art. Their arch-conceptual designs reached an audience beyond art aficionados when they started collaborating with fashion photography’s cult couple Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in 1997.

Their theatrical collections always presented with a much anticipated element of the unexpected.
