Per Spook






This time last fall, I spent a few weeks in Scandinavia and saw this show at The National Museum of Art Architecture and Design in Oslo. Per Spook was a Norwegian fashion designer with his own haute couture maison in Paris from 1977 to 1995. His work has incredible prints and unusual silhouettes, something I think is a rare combination. Spook is still active as a designer, he creates prêt-à-porter under his own name in Japan (!). These images are scanned from my catalog of the exhibit, and there are a few more scattered around the internerd (lots of crystal....I guess he did some glassware work), but I didn't dig up anything recent. Nothing compares to seeing the garments in real life. Now I wish I'd bought he catalog to the Sixties Fashion exhibition I saw in London before we left!
