I’ll have to face the sad reality that there are simply too many runway shows to review from Fashion Week. While I’m slowly getting caught up, Jean-Charles De Castelbajac’s collection caught my eye.
So whimsical, yet wearable, his Spring 2014 collection consists of unexpected fabric combinations as well as bold color blocking in vibrant and neutral hues. However, the most striking feature of the collection is the display of his own art on his designs. Whether it is a patchwork of arms and legs, a poem, or even an abstract painting of a face, Jean-Charles’s art inspiration is sure to turn a few heads from art critics and fashionistas alike.
It was part fashion, part art – it’s fashart! Not to be confused with shart.
