Throughout the 1990s, Jean Colonna created simple but cleverly executed silhouettes with a decidedly anti-establishment sentiment. Colonna was a queer designer at a time when ideas of inclusivity and genderless clothing were rarely seen in the industry. His vision encompassed glam visuals, loud artificial fabrics and a deep-seated affinity for bad taste. While somewhat underappreciated nowadays, his work possesses significant contemporary relevance and is one of the most popular choices for rentals in our archive.
'I don't like the idea of being elitist, my clothes are for all bodies, for all social categories, and that has nothing to do with the price.'
