The new year has arrived and it’s time to show you a brand new series. For the first project of the new year, I have invited Studio Fantasma to work on few interesting illustrations based on the S/S 2014 collections.
As you can read from the title, this series is all about the backstage actions. However, instead of the typical backstages you see in the photos, we have decided to give them a fantasy twist, which each of them will fit the aesthetic of the particular collection. For the first piece, we have Marc Jacobs S/S 2014 collection.
I like the setting of this illustration a lot. When I first saw the runway video back in September, all I could think of was Doomsday. In this illustration, Cristiana & Pietro have created the “survivor” scene where the girls are exploring the post-apocalyptic land. The image overall is very vibrant and it seems like the girls have finally found the right location to rebuild their community.

Now let’s read what Cristiana & Pietro have to say about this wonderful illustration.
“When we saw the collection the first time, it inspired us a story about people shipwrecked on an island or on an unknown exotic, wild land. That’s the reason why they wore european, super decorated jackets and dresses that reminded us of the end of 19th century style (military inspired jackets), mixed with exotic pieces found somewhere, maybe given by the local population (or rebuilt with part of a dress and part of something else). The style of this collection breaks the traditional, dark dresses of european world with something unexpected and strong: the outfits show us free mind girls, bare foot, elegant and wild at the same time, without any rules or etiquette.”
Stay tuned for the next piece of this backstage fantasy series! Can you guess which backstage we will go next?
