A Clockwork Orange

02 Nov

JPG X Madonna 90The costumes that Jean Paul Gaultier designed for the finale of Madonna’s  « Blond Ambition World Tour », in 1990, when she performed « Keep It Together », were based on Stanley Kubrick’s « A Clockwork Orange » and Bob Fosse’s « Cabaret ».

Other « A Clockwork Orange »-influenced collections : Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 Menswear (this collection sometimes echoed « A Clockwork Orange »), Avakian (in April 2008, Avakian unveiled a collection, at the Australian Fashion Week, which was based on « A Clockwork Orange »), John Galliano Autumn/Winter 2006-2007 Menswear ( wrote that the start of this show was « Oliver Twist meets A Clockwork Orange »), Limi Feu Spring/Summer 2011 (the bowler hats, Droog-inspired eyelashes and Doc Martens-style boots evoked « A Clockwork Orange »), Moschino Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Menswear (the 1st look of this show echoed « A Clockwork Orange »), Rachael Hall Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (the knitted pieces of this collection, presented on May 31, 2012, as part of the London’s Royal College of Art MA, paid homage to « A Clockwork Orange »), Rodnik Spring/Summer 2008 (this collection was a tribute to « A Clockwork Orange »).

    A bit random….I ran into a “Clockwork Orange” Hello Kitty doll the other day. An interesting book, an interesting movie, an interesting influence on fashion.

      So true, thanks so much ! JPG’s drawings are soooooooo amazing (OK, I may be a little biased !). I was lucky enough to see Madonna perform “Keep It Together”, live in Nice, France, and, as it was the last concert of her “Blond Ambition Tour”, all her staff came on stage for the finale, and this was a very fashionable and emotional moment ! XOXO
