Jake and Dinos Chapman

Louis Vuitton AW1314 MenswearKim Jones commissioned Jake and Dinos Chapman to produce images, including the one used for this «Snow Leopard» sweater (and a floral print dubbed «Garden in Hell»), for the Louis Vuitton Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Menswear Show.

Some Jake and Dinos Chapman’s collaborations: Alexander McQueen (Alexander McQueen collaborated with the Chapman Brothers), Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2009 (Jake and Dinos Chapman designed the backdrop of this show).

Some designers who adore the leopard motif : Christian Dior (the couturier dared to use the leopard print in his show, on February 12, 1947, to symbolize a wild glamour ; the couturier had obtained the exclusivity of this motif, that he called « jungle », from Bianchini-Férier), Dolce & Gabbana (indissociable from the brand, this motif has been revisited by the designers after they admired pictures of ’50s and ’60s glamorous actresses ; confessing that this motif was so common that it could be seen as a color, for Spring/Summer 2007, they unveiled the « Animalier » accessories line, which was entirely dedicated to the leopard print), John Galliano (the designer said, in the March 2007 issue of « L’Officiel », that the leopard motif was part of his DNA), Roberto Cavalli (the leopard motif has been used many times in the designer’s collections and show sets).
