ARTIST FOCUS PART 2; JC DE CASTELBAJAC -THE DESIGNER

Many people might wonder what differs Jean Charles art from his fashions, even though they are just as extravagant and remarkably different.
Jean Charles answer is simply that Art has no “function” in peoples lives, fashion does.
Fashion is directional and answers questions. It is there to protect and make people feel beautiful and therefore functional in comparison to his art that is there to inspire and to create a mystery and to make people wonder..

Though JCs designs in this SS14 collection seems bold, it is a quite safe ensemble of creations compared to some of his previous designs (SS09′ show in Paris) where he has been massively inspired by LEGO and Disney figures.
The 2009 Fall/Winter show delivered in true Jean-Charles elements with confident and risky designs.
It is one of my favorite shows of all time.
