Jean-Charles de Castelbajac

What the audience really responded to was a black leather bandeau shaped like a pair of hands grasping its model's breasts. But as for what Perry might personally choose, our money is on the strapless black dress with the hand-painted skull, the one wearing the blue crystal necklace that matched her cerulean wig.
Balancing out the Schiaparelli and Man Ray moments was more straightforward sportswear: fringed, blanket-plaid jackets, pants, and dresses; a khaki trench; an oversize herringbone suit. If de Castelbajac wants to differentiate this sophisticated stuff from his lower-priced JC/DC line, he shouldn't have let the 101 Dalmatians out of the showroom.
