Jonas Mekas, the world renowned filmmaker, poet and
installation artist, seems to have discovered a new
talent! agnès b., equally world renowned clothing
designer, has engaged Jonas Mekas to decorate her
stores worldwide with special holiday season fun and
happiness pieces.
The decorations, inspired by texts and drawings that
Mekas created for his recent show at agnès b.’s
galerie du jour in Paris, include colorful flowers and
sometimes provocative, yet ironic texts such as
“Make War not Love” and “Be Bad" signed by the devil.
The predominant colors of the texts and drawings
are light red and sky blue that give the stores a
personalized, holiday season feeling.
When asked about his designs for agnès b.’s stores the
artist said: “The world is becoming too serious, we
need more fun even in the stores.” What’s next ? “I would like to do the same for the Macy’s!” the artist said while laughing.
The texts and drawings will be shown on gift cards,
packaging and stickers on the holiday card.
For the agnès b. artist T-shirt line, Mekas lent his
designs to limited edition t-shirts with the December
and January text on the front and decorated with his
flower drawing on the back. The t-shirts for men and
women are available in stores mid-December.
Jonas Mekas for agnès b. holiday 2009 now on display at agnès b. stores (France, Uk, USA).
