Christopher Lee Sauvé: Das Brain hinter Mileys bestem Shirt aller Zeiten

Karl Lagerfeld mit Burger und Milkshake – unbezahlbar!

Vor einigen Tage sind wir von MTV Style komplett ausgerastet. Wir klickten uns so durch die Instagrams der Stars bis wir plötzlich Miley Cyrus in dem besten Shirt der Welt erblickten. Ein Karl Lagerfeld Shirt. Nein, nicht von seinem Label und auch nicht in seinem klassischen schwarzen Signature-Look. Es ist ein Bild von Pre-Diät Karl, lange bevor er abhängig von Cola Light wurde und seine Haare weiß puderte. Und Pre-Diät-Karl mochte Milkshakes und Burger mehr als alles andere.



Endlich haben wir herausgefunden, welcher Designer hinter diesem großartigen Must-Have-Piece steckt: Christopher Lee Sauvé. Und, wer hätte es gedacht, auch seine anderen Kreationen sind genauso amüsant! Wir müssen unbedingt unseren Kleiderschrank mit seinen Shirts aufstocken. Wirklich.

Unsere Kollegen aus Amerika haben den Guten zu seinem plötzlichen Erfolg ausgequetscht:

MTV Style: Is it t-shirts you design, primarily?

Christopher Lee Sauvé: Yes, I love t-shirts because they are the original punk uniform. To me, they are a walking form of art, where I can provoke, excite and piss off people!

How do you pick who to depict on them?

Sauvé: I am obsessed with icons, people who have a look and are almost human cartoons.



Can you explain the process of creating the shirts?

Sauvé: I create a theme, then research for months to form a certain “world” that captures the statements I want to make graphically. For example, the Madmaus and Pop Cult Club collection I showed at New York Fashion Week.



Do you have a favorite? Why is it your fave?

Sauvé: The CLS Signature Pattern! I created the pattern with old punk rock flyers and changed them with my own statements.



Where did you find that photo of Karl eating the Big Mac? And did you immediately know it’d make a perfect t-shirt?

Sauvé: My friend Robyn actually sent it to me from an old magazine she scanned and instantly I thought “F–k You, I’m Lagerfeld,” because he is OWNING that hamburger and shake!



Did you know Miley Cyrus owned that shirt? What was your reaction when you found out?

Sauvé: Miley is a friend of mine, I was introduced to her through stylist Patricia Field (who sells my t-shirts in her store on the Bowery). I instantly fell in love with her, she has incredible artistic talent and her energy is phenomenal.

Any upcoming t-shirt designs you can tease for us?

Sauvé: YES! I am currently working on my next collection for New York Fashion Week. Right now, artist John Gage Lazare and I are frantically putting everything together!
