We have featured the fabulous work of the French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac many times before, such as for his LEGO catwalkshow and his Obama dresses and collections.

Now the designer is exhibiting his first solo exhibition of art vs fashion pieces entitled “Triumph of the Sign” at Paradise Row, London.

The images are filled with juxtaposed classical paintings set against modern-day designer pop iconography. The results are highly iconic pieces where Dior letters, YSL and the golden arrows of McDonalds are hijacking classical masterpieces.
