Jean-Charles of Castelbajac

Since 1968, the fashion spread his ideas pop and humorous on the fashion scene. 40 Therefore, existence and creations “shocks”, Jean-Charles of Castelbajac likes to surprise and abolish the borders between art and fashion. Where the bags dresses entrusted with brushes of various contemporary artists, coats blankets in reference to Beuys and teddy jackets… The influences collide and create an all in technicolor style… It deserved a show, right?

The two major sources of inspirations Mr of Castelbajac are childhood and art. Childhood: He is always looking to revive the world of childhood that he left too soon. Indeed, his father died at the fifteenth year of the boy, which projects directly in adult mode. It starts from Casablanca with his mother and settled in Paris.

The art: His first love turned to the world of pure art, so he entered the Beaux Arts at 16. Accordingly, the foundation is laid. He will never do anything like everyone else and will cause the décompartimentée mode, which allows designers to express themselves in all areas, design, decor, and also fashion.

The 70s are rich in accessible artists, wholly characters determined to make things happen and play with the consumer society, diverting its codes … He attended Keith Haring, Malcolm McLaren, the Sex Pistols and Andy Warhol … meetings and friendships that will continue to feed him and feed his work. In 1972 he joined the group “creators and industry”

Creative, he is since his teens: everyone knows the famous story of the coat cut in the cover of the school. What will remain of him this experience, which was also made famous, it is this love of diversion. He likes to cut clothes in unexpected materials: Velcro, floor cloths, anything goes!

Beyond this intensive recycling of unusual textiles, his trademark is really recognizable to this candid look fresh and it poses on women and that makes the dress colors, cartoons and teddy! In 1978 he created his own brand, and became a member of the Chambre Syndicale couture. Would follow the boom years, when he is asked to teach everywhere in major fashion schools, for exhibitions in New York or London.

It creates even Pope John Paul II and 5,000 priests on the occasion of World Youth Day 1997, a new version of the liturgical stole. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, is transverse, he goes from one heading to another without any problems and even brilliantly.

Evidence in 2000, where live a parade happening in the underground, an intimate presentation templates in the walls of the company and his first Haute Couture … He needed a place that would contain ideas and present their universe, therefore it creates several boutiques in Paris, the store concepts where only the times decides the selection of items for sale…

In 2001, he receives the Design Award, and in 2004, the English group Marchpole brings him financial support. “Marchpole became the majority shareholder of the house and I myself entered the group’s capital. “Castelbajac” is now part of an international group.

It is a rebirth… »said the creator. In 2006, parallel to this high fashion and luxury universe urban street, he began designs for the home, accessories and fragrances. The Victoria & Albert Museum in London devoted a retrospective? because it is now recognized internationally as an artist.

Now Castelbajac far to sit on his laurels still has a multitude of projects and desires… “I still have to refine the concepts, work details, stitching. I search also accessible.

If I could work again with Keith Haring, I did not opt ​​for a single model, I’d rather 10 000 T-shirts. Today, I like to spread, I like to create the global system, I do not want to be in the resistance. “We therefore expect even beautiful surprises from him… In the meantime, visit the Galliera museum, where he invites us into his world until July 29.
