Fashion draws inspiration from a wide array or sources. And art certainly draws from fashion in much the same way. This cyclical phenomenon is evident in this terrific series by French duo Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez, otherwise known as Helmo. Aptly titled “Bêtes de mode” (Fashion Animals), each piece depicts a fashion model in blue, with a thematically complimentary animal superimposed in red. The series has been on display in the windows of iconic upscale Paris department store Galeries Lafayette on Hausmann Boulevard. To capitalize on the duotone effect, the installation featured colored gels to reveal just the model portrait or animal portrait, depending on which one the viewer looked through. This technique is sort of reminiscent of those old school 3D glasses, with the red and blue lenses. Just brilliant. Get the full effect through the video below..
