The jungle scenes which are depicted in Henri Rousseau’s paintings have inspired the Hermès by Christophe Lemaire Spring/Summer 2014 Show.
Other Henri Rousseau-influenced collections : J.W. Anderson Pre-Fall 2012 (to describe the urban fantasies that he showcased in this collection, J.W. Anderson told « British Vogue » that there was « an element of Henri Rousseau and jungles in Paris »), Saloni Resort 2014 (in this collection, Saloni Lodha mixed Le Douanier Rousseau’s work with the colors of India).
Furthermore, the walls of the 1st Jungle Jap store that Kenzo Takada opened in 1970, in Paris’ Galerie Vivienne, were decorated with murals that were influenced by Henri Rousseau’s « jungle » paintings.
