Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre’s Scarves Inspired by TVs and Trash Bags

July 17, 2013


Known for designing scarves with antique hues drawn from 19th century Matisse masterpieces and old Americana landscapes, Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre decided to take on a more contemporary muse for their fall collection: suburban life. Specifically, the kind depicted in the 1984 French film “Les Nuits De Pleines Lunes," which inspired designers Amelie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan, who were born in the same year the film was released (aka mille neuf cent quatre vingt quatre), to draw the TV sets, trash bags and stacks of old books they saw in the movie on silk. The film centers on a mundane Parisian suburb where the main character, Louise, spends her time yearning for a more exciting life in the city, though wrapping yourself in one of their silkscreened suburban images, made from handmade processes like drawing, painting and photo montaging, means you'll look far from anything boring. Check them out below.
