JCDC AW67 Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was one of the British icons that Jean-Charles de Castelbajac celebrated in his Autumn/Winter 2006-2007 Show.

Other William Shakespeare-inspired collections or items : Juliette Has a Gun (the heroine of this French perfume brand, founded by Romano Ricci, is a revisited version of William Shakespeare’s Juliet), Romeo Gigli (the bottle of the perfume that Romeo Gigli launched in America, in 2003, was engraved with an extract from William Shakespeare’s « Romeo and Juliet »), Strange Invisible Perfumes (this perfume brand, created by Alexandra Balahoutis, was named after a line in William Shakespeare’s « Antony and Cleopatra »), Temperley Spring/Summer 2006 (the makeup of this show, by Charlotte Tilbury, was inspired by « Hamlet »’s Ophelia), Vivienne Westwood (Vivienne Westwood designed a T-shirt with a « William Shakespeare with a red nose » print, exclusive to T.k.maxx, to celebrate Red Nose Day 2011, with a percentage of profits going to Comic Relief, that helps to change lives in the UK and across Africa), Yves Saint Laurent Couture Autumn/Winter 1980-1981 (this collection was an homage to William Shakespeare’s work), Zadig & Voltaire Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (« William Shakespeare » slogan on a sweater).

    I love the black and white with the colored heels in this look. The top is very cool- I think it would look great with skinny jeans, for an interesting weekend look.

      Thanks ! I could definitely wear this top with black skinny jeans, as my favorite thing in this gothic look is the reference to Hamlet’s skeleton (these gloves are to die for !). XXX
