modern experiments in urban camouflague

modern experiments in urban camouflage:


funny face funny musical filter

i know this was probably some form of soft parody at the time,
because it is high fashion filtered through musical theater via
fancy-feet comedy lens - maybe aggressive parody, i mean, look
at what "american idiot" has done to post-punk
, but these credits
are really quite beautiful, aren't they? the restrained color blocks,
the simplicity + geometry of the whole design has been undeniably
influential on entertainment (look no further than "mad men.")
or maybe this is all derivative + i have my theories of appropriation
mixed up + there is no way paramount mainstream work horses had
influence on the french new wave and and and...maybe i should just
sit back + enjoy the thing.

funny face, audrey hepburn + fred astaire, 1957
