29 Apr
























Björk’s music and Gerhard Richter’s art have inspired the MSGM Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show.

Other Björk-inspired collections and some Björk’s collaborations : Alexander McQueen (the late designer made the front cover direction of Björk’s 1997 « Homogenic » album, directed the second video for her 1998 « Alarm Call » single, teamed up with Björk for her performance of « Bachelorette » at the 2003 Fashion Rocks, at London’s Royal Albert Hall ; moreover, Björk sang at Alexander McQueen’s memorial at London’s St Paul’s Cathedral, on September 20, 2010), Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 1994-1995 (Björk was one of the models of this show, titled, « The Long Journey / Le Grand voyage », which paid tribute to the Inuit civilization), Johan Ku Spring/Summer 2014 (the dichotomy between fantasy and reality, experienced by Selma, as played by Björk, in Lars von Trier’s « Dancer in the Dark », inspired the 3-D plastic dresses of this show), Oscar de la Renta Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the raw Mongolia-influenced makeup of this show, by Gucci Westman for Revlon, referenced Björk when she took to the catwalk for Jean Paul Gaultier’s Autumn/Winter 1994-1995 collection), Sophia Kokosalaki (the Greek designer created Björk’s flowing dress for the opening ceremony of Athens’ 2004 Summer Olympic Games).

    A gorgeous dress! Again, my love of the shift — which is hard for me to wear…..unless….Unless I have it cut to the shape of my body! XO
    The shoes are interesting, too: fur, feathers, fuzzy fabric?

      Thanks ! I think that the shoes are made of very soft fur ! XO

      Me too, thank you ! Although these pieces are very artistic, they’re slightly more wearable than some of the supertalented Björk’s crazy outfits ! XO

    I´m a fool for Björk. She´s a constant source of inspiration for me. Yesterday I needed some encouragement on my way to send off an important art school application which included five of my art works and a motivation letter. I listened to Björk´s album Post, and she just always reminds me of how important it is to be true to yourself. I also love the Post album cover and the style of Björk. She is wearing a paper jacket by Hussein Chalayan by the way…:)
    Thanks for posting this one! 🙂

      You’re so welcome, thanks a lot ! This is so interesting to read how this exceptionally talented woman inspires you ! My favorite Björk’s albums are “Post” and “Homogenic”, so I can understand the strength of her music on your soul ! Good luck for your art school application ! XD

    Magnifique robe, véritable pièce d’art ! xx

    • Fashion Mayann

      May 2, 2014 at 1:02 pm

      Je l’adore aussi, merci ! On pourrait même imaginer qu’elle donne envie à Björk d’emballer son prochain CD dedans, ou du moins d’utiliser le sublime imprimé pour sa prochaine pochette ! ❤
