Inspired by surrealism, the installation presents dummies lying on the ground, whose legs and arms intermingle, remind us some of the erotic photomontages of french underground artist Pierre Molinier (see last photo -NSFW-).

Photomontage by Pierre Molinier

Pierre Molinier (1900-1976) was an artist whose work was centered around fetishistic eroticism he was also a maker of objects. He seems to have influenced directly or indirectly some fashion designers. Marc Jacobs himself was inspired by a shoe of his creation, for his SS 2008 collection (please read the note i had written then).

Plaza Athénée x Dorchester Prize

Last night at Plaza-Athénée it was a pleasure to see Annelie Augustin and Odély Teboul, the two nice designers of Berlin-based label Augustin Teboul wining the 4th Dorchester Collection Fashion Prize. My thoughts also go to the work of Quentin Veron and IRM Design.

You would think that presentations should give greater scope for designers to tell their story compared to the narrow confines of a runway show. Very rarely is that the case though.

Design duo Annelie Augustin and Odély Teboul really showed how it should be done. The scene was grand and sophisticated, with silver trays of vodka cocktails weaving amongst the guests and Chopin playing from a grand piano.

The atmosphere on the other hand was full of sexual tension, like finding yourself at an exclusive high society party and forever feeling that an orgy is about to break out at any moment.

Models draped themselves across the couches and furniture in provocative poses, flowers arranged in huge sculptural forms rose up around them. Black lace was pulled tight across skin. Sheer silk, often embellished with glossy black beads, was draped from the shoulder and waist in varying volumes and lengths. A tougher edge took the form of leather jackets and pants in biker styles.

The word presentation doesn’t accurately describe the final result – this was a performance.
