When I first started Draw A Dot., one of the illustrators I really wanted to collaborate with was Cristian Grossi. Today, my wish has finally come true and let me present you this new Draw A Dot. WITH series – Manga Legends.
For this original series, we are going to look at few of the most popular mangas back in the 80s and 90s era and Cristian will be dressing the characters in the S/S & F/W 2013 collections. Our first pick is The Rose of Versailles and both Lady Oscar and Marie Antoinette are dressed in Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2013 collection.
This is what Cristian has to say about these 3 pieces.
“I think Dolce & Gabbana is the perfect fit for the lustful story of The Rose of Versalles. The story is very erotic and the baroque imaginary is strictly connected with the Dolce and Gabbana world (full of European influences and luxury golden decorations).
In these illustrations, the red rose emphasizes blood, and being a symbol of sex and pain.
The languid and dramatic eyes of Oscar and Antoinette represent the feelings of lust, life, and death.
Also, if you read the manga, you should know Lady Oscar likes to dress up like a man. Therefore, I have decided to dress her up in Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2013 menswear.”
I truly love the illustrations created by Cristian and they have captured the vibe of the story. Also, both ladies look very good in the Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2013 collection!
Keep your eyes on this site as I will show you the 2nd part of this series very soon. Stay tuned!
