CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU
The eye - iconic element of our Fall/Winter women's collection - has always inspired fashion and art. Here's a little selection of albums artworks we like, playing around it.
The Pretty Things
Savage Eye, released in 1975, was the eighth album by sixties rockers The Pretty Things, and their second on Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song Records label. Singer and final founding member Phil May would quit the band the following year.
The cover of Michael Jackson’s "Dangerous" is a feast of detail and hidden meaning, from masonic symbols to The Wizard of Oz and Disney references. It was designed by painter Mark Ryden, a leading figure of the American Pop Surrealist movement.
Eyeball masks are the trademark prop of The Residents, a US-based art collective best known for avant-garde music and multimedia works. The prolific band has released over 60 albums since it was formed in the mid-1970s. This 1979 release was presented at the time as a concept album about the Inuit community.
Burning For You
English band Strawbs, who formed at the close of the 1960s, commissioned Patrick Woodroffe to create the sleeve art for this late-1970s release. Woodroffe also designed the album cover for metal group Judas Priest’s "Sad Wings of Destiny".
Gang Gang Dance
Brian Degraw, a member of NYC’s Gang Gang Dance, designed the cover for their 2005 release based on a photo by fellow band member Nathan Maddox, who was killed in 2002 when he was struck by lightning in a storm. Degraw imagined Maddox’s eyes roaming over the world.
