Peter, Paulette and Drella

My previous post expressed the time-machine mood that
sometimes takes me but I'm not the only one walking
through the past. Peter Jensen's resort 2014 collection
is largely inspired by two American icons of last century:
actress Paulette Goddard and artist Andy Warhol,
Drella for his friends.

Jensen, the Danish born, London-based designer who's
known for his lighthearted approach and his ”cleverly
conceived, quirkily humorous clothes” as Vogue's Harriet
Quick introduced him, imagined the couple hanging out
together in a stunning lookbook (unfortunately, 
I'm not able to credit the photographer).

Inventive and playful as ever, Jensen's men's and
women's latest outfits show clever hints to the past that
are neither a copy nor a remake yet a tender homage
to those timeless icons of style through an ironic yet
sober pop art flavor that cheers me up after such a
busy week. Have a nice weekend.
