“What was your inspiration for this collection?” A required question that the designers are asked each season. After the Fall’10 Fashion Week, I think they should be asked the same question about the footwear they put onto the models. The shoes, have been getting just as much attention as the clothes being showed on the runways. For some of the designers, the reaction from viewers would be the tilting of the head and a raised eyebrow.
This past week the Parisian designers outdid themselves. I had to wonder what they were thinking and mumbled that notorious question under my breathe. Unfortunately each of the following designers were not available to answer me and my imagination started to run wild!
Chanel–Big Foot. Givenchy–Little Red Riding Hood.Jean
Jean Paul Gaultier–Arabian Nights. Yves Saint Laurent–Last Of The Mohicans.
Paul Marni– The Woman that Lived In Her Shoe John Galliano–Ax Men
The French have given me another reason to get excited. French artist Amose, shows us his unique use of shapes and colors in his illustrations. The tiny heads and unusual human forms is what Amose’s signature work looks like on canvases, walls and also his digital work.
On most of his art the subjects have robotic shaped bodies that are big, strong and not to be messed with. Neck up is a different story. Make them look human is what he did, giving his subjects regular size heads with very expressive faces that have than human feel to them, making you appreciate what you’re looking at. Let’s see if Amose will be kind enough to create an animation bringing his characters to live!
