Other Rudolf Nureyev-inspired collections : Balmain by Olivier Rousteing Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Menswear (Rudolf Nureyev’s style was mixed with the elegance of Russia’s Imperial Army officers), Carven by Guillaume Henry Resort 2013 (Peter Schlesinger’s photographs of ’70s icons such as Rudolf Nureyev have inspired this collection), Costume National Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 Menswear (the pieces such as caps, skinny trousers into boots, and scarves around the waist, evoked Rudolf Nureyev’s elegance), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (during this presentation, some men’s pieces were also showcased, which echoed Rudolf Nureyev’s iconic looks), Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 Menswear (this show was partly based on Rudolf Nureyev), Roberto Cavalli Autumn/Winter 2005-2006 Menswear (the show notes mentioned Rudolf Nureyev).

      Thank you ! To celebrate the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014, I wanted to pay tribute to 3 very different dance styles (French cancan, disco and ballet), and, to me, it was right to honor this very special dancer who has broken so many rules ! Let’s start a dance revolution ! XO

        En fait je voulais dire Simbad le marin au début ! Je ne me rappelais plus du nom sur le coup XD Effectivement le turban y fait beaucoup :p

        Cette comparaison me plaît aussi beaucoup ! Pour moi, c’est très intéressant de voir qu’une inspiration précise peut évoquer d’autres influences ! ❤
