Jake and Dinos Chapman

25 Jan

Louis Vuitton AW1314 MenswearKim Jones commissioned Jake and Dinos Chapman to produce images, including the one used for this «Snow Leopard» sweater (and a floral print dubbed «Garden in Hell»), for the Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Menswear Show.

Some Jake and Dinos Chapman’s collaborations: Alexander McQueen (Alexander McQueen collaborated with the Chapman Brothers), Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2009 (Jake and Dinos Chapman designed the backdrop of this show).

Some designers who adore the leopard motif : Christian Dior (the couturier dared to use the leopard print in his show, on February 12, 1947, to symbolize a wild glamour ; the couturier had obtained the exclusivity of this motif, that he called « jungle », from Bianchini-Férier), Dolce & Gabbana (indissociable from the brand, this motif has been revisited by the designers after they admired pictures of ’50s and ’60s glamorous actresses ; confessing that this motif was so common that it could be seen as a color, for Spring/Summer 2007, they unveiled the « Animalier » accessories line, which was entirely dedicated to the leopard print), John Galliano (the designer said, in the March 2007 issue of « L’Officiel », that the leopard motif was part of his DNA), Roberto Cavalli (the leopard motif has been used many times in the designer’s collections and show sets).

    All I can say is I see that sweater’s future at an ugly sweater party. 😉

      It’s not that I don’t accept awards but I never follow the rules because I stick to my editorial guideline, but, to tell you the truth, I’m always super proud and happy when I’m nominated by an amazing blogger, so, THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!!

    “This season involved travelling to the Himalayas for research and it was the Kingdom of Bhutan that still had that mystery surrounding it… Backpacking has not ruined the Bhutan, and it feels exotic, almost of another time… It is the only place in the world where snow leopards and tigers cross paths and that is one of the reasons why the snow leopard became a chief motif in the collection,” said Kim Jones, men’s designer of Louis Vuitton.
