PARIS, Oct 7, 2009 / FW/ — For Spring 2010, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac visited the French Polynesia and added a bit of two very popular movies, albeit from different eras – Pirates of the Caribbean and South Pacific to his nostalgic look at the French colony.

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Spring 2010

From red, yellow, blue and black grass skirt made of raffia matched with an equally colorful conical bra to a totem pole inspired woven mini dress in black and yellow to the kitschy plastic jacket adorned with postcards, once again took a delightful tongue –in-cheek attitude towards French history.

That French Polynesia exists up to today, but it is now so different from the time that France colonized the islands. There is a bit of nostalgia in Castelbajac’s vision, but then again, the world is changing so fast that we don’t even recognize ourselves from 10 years ago.
