So apparently, Viktor & Rolf broke this collection into three chunks of three: a negligee, a robe of some ilk, and a coat, with each grouping meant to represent a prevalent emotional state:

“The situation has been so terrible, it made [us] wonder, Are we allowed to do this?” said Snoeren. After discussions with their team, they decided that doing nothing was not an option, but that whatever they did, “had to be meaningful,” said Horsting. […]

Cue the film’s campy voiceover (recorded by singer Mika) guaranteeing that “you will remain in your own safe zone while venturing out into the world.” This was Viktor & Rolf at its best: bringing relatable messaging to their avant-garde vision, putting a pop spin on their more conceptual silhouettes.

I would never deny you the aforementioned Mika-narrated video, either:

“The face mask, by the way, has won global acclaim as the smartest new accessory of the season,” Mika says in a perfect newsreel parody. INDEED SIR.
