Never in my life have I wanted to attend Paris Fashion Week, but reading The 405’s description of Kenzo’s fashion show is making me reconsider my lack of interest in high fashion. Kenzo designers, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, literally turned heads on Sunday by tapping David Lynch’s Twin Peaks as inspiration for their Autumn/Winter 2014 line. In case that doesn’t make the clothing line intriguing enough the design duo had Lynch direct the atmosphere for the Kenzo show. In addition to the models doing their turns on the catwalk to a soundscape provided by Lynch there was an unsettling screaming head that looked like a grownup version of the Eraserhead tadpole baby. According to the 405’s post this is the third time these particular designers have used Lynch as a muse.
Kenzo’s designers aren’t the only artists mainlining Lynch this week. Starting March 8, San Francisco’s Spoke Art Gallery, 816 Sutter Street, will open In Dreams: An Art Show Tribute to the Films of David Lynch (hat tip to the Last Gasp blog). The exhibit, which runs until March 29, will showcase art inspired by Lynch’s entire body of work from the Great Northern Hotel to Arrakis.
More than 50 artists will be contributing to this group show and a preview of some of the work can be seen on the Facebook event wall. The open reception is March 8 starting at 6 p.m. It promises to be a crazy clown time.
The list of artists can be found below and at the Spoke Art Gallery website.
