Jean-Charles de Castelbajac (1949)

The noble French designer has much used his love for contemporary art inspire his designs: from his Teddy Bear coat evoking Arman's accumulations to explicit tributes with his graffiti or “painting” dresses. He values pop culture that he refers to in all his shows with a sharp sense of youth and freedom
