002: the epic age

to be played at: Balenciaga

for the girl: who is “like John Rambo meets Polly Pocket; Dakota Fanning crossed with Death Wish 4.” – Mark Millar, Kick-Ass.

mood: The initial inspiration was the word “EPIC.”  I focused on two songs, “Once Upon a Time in China” by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and “The Imperial March” from “The Empire Strikes Back” by John Williams.  It led me to explore scores from movie soundtracks.  With the help of a music extraordinaire and the archives of the sound stylist, Javier Peral, the grandiose songs and positive feel good songs, created a playlist, perfect for a model like Hope Bowers, to march down the runway in Balenciaga gear.
