Jean Paul Lespagnard sent me pictures of his spring 2009 collection for 1.2.3. Here is a another excerpt from my interview with him:
“Sometimes I’m finding fabric, sometimes I’m hearing stories., sometimes I meet someone and I get inspired, sometimes it is a movie. Like my next collection (for 1.2.3.) is about Sylvester Stallone. When I was in Hyeres, I had this idea about doing a collection about Jaqueline, like she is fed up with Texas and she is watching the movie Cliffhanger. So she decides to go to Austria to become a climber and she is completely obsessed by Sylvester Stallone at the end, so she is watching Rocky Balboa. So my next collection will be about climbers and boxers.”
The new issue of Mode Depesche has just been released. The cover of the fashion magazine features model and actress Marisa Berenson (granddaughter of famous fashion designer Elisa Schiaparelli). You may remember Marisa from her roles in Barry Lydon or Visconti’s Death in Venice. Of course there are many photos of her. I only want to point you to the cover of Vogue (July 1970), together with Helmut Berger.
Also, there is an interview with Peter Berlin done by Claus.
Anyway, at the beginning of July I did a short trip to Brussels to meet up with designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard to talk about his latest collections, French fries, obsessions and Madonna”™s death.
Pictures of his work and the interview after the jump.
