Jean-Charles de Castelbajac x Agnelle
Already won over and inspired by the poetry of Agnelle, JCC gave his imagination free rein on a sheet of white leather from the first meeting. With a few pencil strokes, he sketched out “L’autre Moi”, one of the 10 arty models in sparkling colors in this exclusive/explosive collaboration.
From there on, each glove would tell its own story: «The Two Brothers», «Solitary Lovers», «The Rock’mitaines»... A play written by four hands, performed in a small theater assembled by the shape-shifting artist.
Without ever taking it self seriously, the JCC and Agnelle collaboration represents a recitation of lovely«peau-aime» (poems, a pun on love of leather), from mittens to long gloves, marking the first act in a creative interplay between two free thinkers.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac
Jean Charles de Castelbajac is one of the transgenerational emblematic creators of our time, for this total and polymorphous work that he has been putting in place for decades. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has never seen boundaries between art, fashion and design.
His thought is a kind of rhizome that launches 1000 concepts in 1000directions and each of which gives birth to a creation, a sound, a collaboration, a staging, a drawing. He is a sprawling artist who is not only defined by the restricted field of fashion.He assembles, hijacks, appropriates, quotes, parodies, puts in abyss, all that the image factories that are cinema, art, Disney, TV, comics, fashion and many others, we give to see.
Its chromatic prism has spread abroad and has taken up residency around the globe through a multidisciplinary universe mixing music, art, history and poetry.
