Why Did Peter Jensen Make a Collection About the Gory Death of a Socialite?


In what might be the darkest bit of fashion inspiration this side of Alexander McQueen, Danish designer Peter Jensen channeled the signature style of Sunny von Bülow, a socialite who became infamous after her untimely drug-related death in 1980 led to suspicions that her husband Claus murdered her with an insulin-overdose. Claus was acquitted, but poor Sunny remained in a vegetative state until she died in 2008—how this came to be on the moodboard for Jensen is hard to know, but it’s difficult to even pay attention to the cute corduroy dresses and sweater sets he’s designed when you’re so distracted by a comatose model, eyes shut with a flashlight in her face.
