Blue Velvet

Kenzo AW1415

Aaron de Mey’s blue makeup for the Kenzo by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Collection paid homage to David Lynch’s « Blue Velvet » (David Lynch created the set of this show and mixed its soundtrack music).

Other « Blue Velvet »-inspired campaigns and collection : Fenton Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (the ad campaign for this collection, shot by Hugh Lippe, was based on « Blue Velvet »’s dark atmosphere), H&M (Johan Renck’s campaign video for the H&M Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 Collection, featured Lana Del Rey, who covered Bernie Wayne and Lee Morris’ « Blue Velvet » song), Lulu & Co Spring/Summer 2014 (to describe this collection, Lulu Kennedy told : « I am probably David Lynch’s biggest fan, and « Mysteries of Love » on the « Blue Velvet » soundtrack really got me thinking about love »).

    I am imaging the gorgeous maxi skirt with the fabulous boots and just a plain turtleneck (and a belt?) — a longer line for curvy? The current top hides her waist, but for me it is an asset I cannot waist (whoops! waste). XO

      Thanks a lot ! It’s hypnotically gorgeous, and it’s my own little homage to Humberto Leon and Carol Lim for the great job they did at the Hyères Festival last weekend ! Xxx

    There is always such a “cool” factor to Kenzo…
    love the unorthodox mix of pattern and style…
    paired with those chunky wedge ankle boots!!~ xo

      Thank you ! That’s this dichotomy which makes this look so amazing : a lightly hypnotizing outfit with such heavy shoes ! XO

    I love the layering of the knit/bustier on the top. Coupled with that sexy slit maxi, the look is so unique and eye-catching!

      Thanks ! This extremely graphic silhouette is as eye-catching as David Lynch’s cinema and art ! XOXO

    very interesting look, we are loving the colors patterns and silhouettes! this is a perfect look for women who dress conservatively but also like to look sexy and edgy!

      Indeed, thank you ! You explain it well : it’s conservative but edgy and sexy too ! What a prowess ! I confess that I have chosen this particular image because, to me, the optical pattern really suits David Lynch’s atmospheric movies ! XOXO
