Dutch fashionhouse Viktor & Rolf’s neoclassical store in Milan is decadently elegant and all, but there’s something not quite right about it. For one, these chandeliers are sticking out of the ground. Nope, the designers weren’t drunk. The inverted decor was exactly what architect Siebe Tettero had in mind when they approached him to “twist the classic”. Now we’re the ones who could use that drink. Bottoms up.
