A Wagner opera takes to the catwalk in Roch Matuszek’s Valkyrie Collection, inspired by the famous musical work and based on the mythological Norse saga. His interpretation is a dramatic interlude of power, gender, sexuality and style. The collection features SM elements as well as historically relevant components in a modern and symbiotic presentation. Roch stages a powerplay in aesthetics and sexually expressed dominance along with unbridled animalism. This is role-playing at its best; a dialogue where mythology meets military, history faces contemporary and ceremony challenges brutality in a battle of the sexes and centuries. As with all role-playing, the contrast can be found behind the mask. This is evident in Roch’s use of adverse elements: tight vs. loose, dark vs. bright, heavy vs. lightweight and in the materials he selects to portray this. The collection would not be what it is without Roch’s innovative use of materials. His expertise in textile processing and finishing allows him to fuse horse hides, latex, lace and applications to provide exciting contrasts with the more traditional denim, silk, mohair wool, premium cotton and organza fabrics. The underside of these innovative bonded creations brings forth an empathetic, more multi-faceted story. Pieces with characteristic structuring, like 16th century-inspired corsets and riding coats, engage in camaraderie with casual styles that are blousy and flowing. Newly interpreted bodices and décolletés endorse feminity while generous silhouettes that begin at the hip – the symbol of female fertility – extend out into the room to empower the wearer. Wagner-typical equine elements are visible everywhere: from the rein-like accessories to the latex-backed horse hide skirts and detailing. The collection embodies Roch Matuszek’s philosophy of fashion theatrics – featuring 5 couture showpieces – and following these up with more variable showpieces that have streetwear appeal. Each of the pieces makes a strong independent statement and creates a dynamic flow that swirls dominance and submission in an eternal whirlpool of mutual dependency. THE VALKYRIE COLLECTION
