Jean-Charles de Castelbajac



Paris: Over the years, iconic French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has created a world in which anything goes. This season the clothes are, and always have been for that matter, pop art to the extreme. Castelbajac has used legos, stuffed animals, images of President Obama, and cartoon muppets, so its not surprising that this season represented a fantastical and rollicking journey around the world. Starting at the airport with a 1960s inspired stewardess look, Castelbajac’s girls made their way into the backroad bush in camouflage and animal print and then onto the African savannah with whimsical mixes of traditional tribal prints with stripes and polka dots. For a chic homecoming, girls donned long satin gowns with Eiffel tower graphics, complete with colorful neck pillows. Though his looks can be over-the-top, an acute sense of the season’s key shapes have made Castelbajac a favorite of stars from Madonna to Rihanna as well as stylish girls around the world.
