Souped Up Fashion: The 60's Campbell's Soup Dress
source | brandnoise



Quote:
This is the 1960's Campbell's Soup dress that was inspired by the work of Andy Warhol. These were produced by Campbell's Soup as an effective advertising campaign when paper dresses were all the rage in the 60s. A classic example where fashion, art and industry intersect into one image. This A-line dress is printed with the Campbell's Soup red, black and white labels. At the back of the neckline is the original attached label that reads: "The Souper Dress/No Cleaning/ No Washing/ It's carefree fire resistant unless washed or cleaned/To refreshen, press lightly with warm iron/80% Cellulose, 20% Cotton."

VIOLISE LUNN

Quote:
Violise Lunn was born in Copenhagen in1969, and graduatedas a fashion designer in 1995 from Denmarks Design School . She has run her own studio in Copenhagen since 1997, where she specialises in the design and making of one of a kind pieces of clothing for women.

Evening wear, dresses, accessories, bridal wear and unique pieces of daily wear line the studio walls, as does a fantastic collection of stunning fabrics, brought home from Violise Lunns many travels around the world. The fabrics and the stories behind them are her main source of inspiration. Violise Lunn does not focus on trends, but on refining and emphasising the uniqueness in every textile used, in every piece of clothing made, and in every woman who bears the clothes. The personal touch and a very high level of sophistication is her trademark.

Alongside creating these wearable items, Violise Lunn's other passion is making unwearable items from the simplest textile of all: paper. Finding perfect freedom in this material through sculpting figure silhouettes, angels and her favourite theme: shoes, she allows herself to play with otherwise impossible compositions. Sheer lightness and utter fragility combined with experimental reflection about what these objects represent, amounts to such almost untouchable objects, that they have instantly become collectors items.

Allowing herself to divide her time between these two artforms, the usable and the useless, Violise Lunn lets them feed each other with inspiration. Their origin is the same – to permit dreaminess and the search for perfection.
A Violise Lunn garment, be it wearable or not, is timeless. References to both the past and fantasies of the future can be found, but far more important is that each piece struts a surprising and uplifting indifference to what else is going on in the world.
A number of highly respected awards have come her way. In 1999 she won the Danish fur prize ‘The Golden Fur Needle'. In 2000, she was awarded the ‘Golden Button'. In 2002, Carlsberg gave her the ‘Thimble Award'.
