Whilst visiting the divine Bugaboo Head Office today I had the good fortune to play with the very first Viktor&Rolf stroller to reach Australia.
When I saw the clip announcing the Viktor&Rolf I was somewhat underwhelmed. The clip was jazzy but really, a grey Bug? And those wheels?! Seeing in life however – wow!!
The canopy is a soft supple leather, not too shiny but enough to wow walkers by. The grab bar and handle are also wrapped in a soft leather, with stitching across the seam, identical to the steering wheel of the car from which it was based on.
The wheels – oh the wheels. Every sweet ride needs a set of mags and the Viktor&Rolf Bugaboo is no different. Die-hard Bug-fans may not like them.. I on the other hand LOVE them! They turn the Buggy into a stylish baby-mobile, along with the number-plates, the Viktor&Rolf is definitely not for the faint-hearted.
And of course these are all set atop an amazing sleek anodized grey C3 chassis that is sleek and smooth.
The Viktor&Rolf will be available from October at selected Bugaboo retailers and will tagged at $2199.
