Children have a chance to slip into the skin of all kinds of animals at Biennale de Saint Etienne

Taking the form of a collection of costumes, the creation offers children the chance to get into the skins of animals of all kinds, from the tamest to the wildest. When we dress up, it almost feels like that we are free to live in our imaginary world, and excused from any odd behavior.

This collection of stunning costumes was a creation of an eclectic team comprising Studio Brichet Ziegler, Perrine Vigneron and Gilles Belley, Louise de Saint Angel, Anne Lutz, Joachim Jirou-Najou, Felipe Ribon, Les Graphiquants, Twice, Helkarava, Bonnefrite, Malika Favre, Amélie Fontaine, Leslie David and Ionna Vautrin.

“In conjunction with the adjoining exhibition, the workshop designed by Ionna Vautrin offers each child the chance to get into the skin of a designer then that of the wild animal, feathered or sea creature he has created. Just like for the designers invited to take part in the exhibition, the child will have the chance to illustrate and make up the animal of his choice on a blank disguise. This workshop with its look of a giant, exotic pet shop will then be transformed into a peculiar sort of design laboratory.” –Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne
