New York, July 12th, 2016 – To celebrate 65 years of folly and glamour, Crazy Horse Paris is throwing itself into a new creative adventure and is making 2016 an exceptional year by inviting the renowned creator of Parisian lingerie Chantal Thomass to be the show Art Director for three months.
After the runaway success of Dita’s Crazy Show, divinely led by the queen of burlesque Dita Von Teese, the famous cabaret on Avenue George V is treating itself and the public to a new, not-to-be-missed show.
With Chantal Thomass, the Crazy Horse is opening its doors to its first-ever female “Guest Creator”. Following Philippe Decouflé and Christian Louboutin, the High Priestess of chic lingerie will dress the legendary Crazy dancers.
Chantal Thomass, assisted by the Crazy Horse Paris team, will be presenting four exclusive, brand new acts alongside iconic Crazy Horse acts, such as “God Save Our Bareskin”, worked into couture pieces to create endlessly reinvented visual effects.
As “Lady of the House”, Chantal Thomass will also add her personal touch to the cabaret, dressing the space to offer visitors a unique experience that will **immerse them into her boudoir world **starting from the opening of the cabaret’s doors all the way to their seats.
The first designer to ever stage lingerie fashion shows on the catwalks in the 1970s, Chantal Thomass has shaken the established codes of undergarments with irreverence and created a real revolution. She brought underwear center stage, turning lingerie into true accessories of fashion and desire.
Trimmed in pink and black, marked by her shadowy silhouette and her red mouth, the universe of Chantal Thomass is unmistakable. Just like that of Crazy Horse Paris, with which it shares the values of audacity, impertinence and timelessness and a now iconic bobbed hairstyle.
The audacity to wear on the outside what everyone wears underneath. The impertinence of an unexpected detail. The timelessness that makes Chantal Thomass’ style, a classic style. She will be incorporating a multitude of dimensions into her project created just for Crazy Horse Paris to infuse it with a touch of lightness, modeled on the poster photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.
Continuing the swing of this creative impulse, Crazy Horse Paris is also innovating on social networks by inaugurating #verticalityreport, a new form of expression designed for Instagram by artist Stéphane Lucas @verticalityworld. Follow it on the @crazyhorseparis_official account.
And to experience this wildly glamorous Parisian show, the Crazy Horse is maintaining its usual offerings and will be presenting a festive New Year’s Eve show, complete with lace and garters!
Chantal Thomass turns Crazy Horse Paris “Dessous Dessus” (French for: Upside Down) from October 5th to December 31st, 2016
Sunday to Friday at 8:15pm & 10:45pm – Saturday at 7pm, 9:30pm & 11:45pm
