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 Style.com : « I am probably David Lynch’s biggest fan, and « Mysteries of Love » on the « Blue Velvet » soundtrack really got me thinking about love »).
