JEAN PAUL LESPAGNARD till we drop

From January 29th to April 5th 2014, Galerie des Galeries opens its doors to belgian talented fashion designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard. A former prize winner of the International Festival of Fashion and Photography in Hyères, he has fashioned the Till We Drop exhibition in his own image : quirky and socially conscious. For his first solo exhibition in Paris, Jean-Paul invites visitors to explore his creative process. Drawing from the identically titled 2014 collection, this exhibition evokes the exuberance of life at Mexico’s giant Mayan Riviera hotels and expresses the artist’s take on this artificial paradise, a world steeped in euphoria, sin and freedom. Dressed as a bee and using a series of installations, Jean-Paul Lespagnard takes us down a guided tour of the rituals and customs of impulse tourism, freed from all material contingencies. As prolific designer Jean-Paul Lespagnard exhibits his work at Galeries Lafayette, several visuals from his Till We Drop project will be displayed in store windows on the rue de la Chaussée d’Antin as well as the store’s first upper floor.
