DISNEY CARTOONS GO DESIGNER FOR SPANISH ELLE

Lord Byron once said, “It was one of the deadliest and heaviest feelings of my life to feel that I was no longer a boy. From that moment I began to grow old in my own esteem”.  Personally, I’ve long maintained that a childish love of cartoons can stay the signs of aging in a far superior manner to the daily application of SPF 15 (though the effects are slightly mitigated when you are discovered chortling…by a client…in an airport lounge…to the antics of Scooby Doo).

 

Spanish Elle was obviously in a similarly Peter Pan frame of mind for their April issue. For contained within its pages, thanks to freelance Disney artist Ulrich Schr√∂der, are Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, John Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Donnatella Versace, and others…all in comic form. Lagerfeld manages to get past the three little pigs with nary a huff or a puff, John Galliano enchants Captain Hook and Peter Pan, and Alber Elbaz creates a ruffled, red ensemble for an obviously enchanted Minnie Mouse.

There may not be a fountain of youth, but there may potentially be a ‘mildly regressive comic strip of fewer grey hairs and the occasional missing wrinkle”.
