Jean-Charles de CastelBajac, or JCDC as his friends MIA and Jammer call him, puts all of his collections on Youtube. The newest one, "Paris by Knight," went up on the Castelbajac channel a couple of days ago. He's known for his cartoony flourishes (remember those Iceberg sweaters?) and retina-scorching use of color, but his latest collection is considerably more low-key—the French designer sets the mood straight off the bat with a single-breasted pinstriped suit. There's still wiggle for play though, especially in his armor-plated leather jackets and Joan of Arc balaclavas.
