French designer Jean Charles de Castelbajac has always managed to crack a few smiles with his whimsical toy-inspired runway designs, but for his S/S 3001 collection, the audience was all grins. Evolving from his recent LEGO-inspired S/S 09 collection, Castelbajac paid homage to his posable yellow friends with a virtual runway show. Large all-over prints of clouds and polka-dots were bright and invigorating. Graphic mini-dresses were all rock n’ roll, emblazoned with phrases like “smells like teen spirit”. His recently debuted Wonder Woman made an appearance as this playful presentation’s final look. Full runway show is available at http://www.vimeo.com/1936876.
