The Decadent Crazy Horse

Musique: Crazy Visuals 

Hiya baby dolls!! Hope your week is fairing well so far!?! I've had these images for a while now and thought to share them!! I adore Crazy Horse and could happily sit in it's beauty forever. Going for more than sixty years, where the original opened in Paris, France. Decades of delightful dancing dames, this classic cabaret is still sizzling, enticing people far and wide. The Crazy Horse continues with the greatest authentic burlesque show on earth. These delightful pieces below were captured by famous fashion designer and artist, Antoine Kruk, in his book titled Crazy. The illustrations depict an intimate view of the dancers through his experiences with them backstage as costume designer. "Crazy Horse has become a part of Parisian identity, mixing sophistication and of course very sensual performances from the dancers," tells Kruk. 

Visually, the book is as sensual as the Crazy Horse reputation! The red velvet cover with silver ink and page edges reflects that sexy image of the symbolic Parisian cabaret. "A boudoir kind of spirit even before you open it," describes Kruk. As you do open the book, the unique preface seduces you with “double pages covered by kisses from the girls," states Kruk with excitement, "I decided that this would be the best introduction!". Filled with one hundred beautiful watercolors by Kruk, the illustrations are divided into three chapters "following the life of a Crazy Horse girl, before, after and during the show," elaborates Kruk. I also decided to treat my drawings in two different styles, as everybody understands that an artist always has two faces. I wanted to show the girls in their intimacy, with fun, heart, and humanity, revealing a part of their everyday life and occupation."

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and you're having a decadent week so far!!
Love loves
