Barbarella

JPG X Mylène Farmer Timeless 13Barbarella, the heroine from the comic book created by Jean-Claude Forest, was one of the 3 inspirations, with Fritz Lang’s « Metropolis » and Joan of Arc, of the costumes that Jean Paul Gaultier designed for the beginning and the finale of Mylène Farmer’s « Timeless 2013 » concerts.

Other Barbarella-inspired items and collections : Antoni & Alison Spring/Summer 2010 (one of the looks of this show was based on Jane Fonda in Roger Vadim’s « Barbarella »), Christopher Kane Resort 2011 (some shoes were named after Barbarella), Emma Cook Spring/Summer 2003 (the muse of this collection, Suzistyrene, was imagined by Emma Cook after she watched Roger Vadim’s « Barbarella »), Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 (look 38 : « Barbarella » corset), Matthew Williamson Spring/Summer 2005 (to capture the ’70s idea of the ideal woman from the future, Matthew Williamson watched movies such as Roger Vadim’s « Barbarella »), Tribune Standard Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 (to describe a neon pattern, influenced by Kremlin architecture, Tawfik Mounayer said that it was « babushka meets Barbarella »).

To read about Mylène Farmer, « Metropolis » or Joan of Arc-inspired collections, search for the « Mylène Farmer », « Metropolis » and « Joan of Arc » posts that I have respectively published on October 2, 2012, May 31, 2012 and March 21, 2013.

Another SpongeBob SquarePants-inspired collection : Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2008 (Marc Jacobs, who has a SpongeBob SquarePants tattoo on his right arm, told Style.com that the colors of SpongeBob SquarePants had influenced this show ; for his bow, Marc Jacobs carried a vanity case which featured a screen showing of SpongeBob).

Moreover, Victoria Beckham was animated for a special episode of « SpongeBob SquarePants », titled « The Clash of Triton », which was aired in the US on July 5, 2010, and celebrities such as Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs and Terry Richardson were reimagined by Mike Frederiqo® as SpongeBob SquarePants, in January 2012.
