Marge lets down her hair for Versace. Lisa gives up her pearls for Alber Elbaz.

Homer dresses as Karl Lagerfeld. Selma & Patty in Viktor & Rolf.

Maggie rides around in Jean Paul Gaultier’s Birkin Bag.

Quite possibly the most incredible fashion spread i’ve seen (ok maybe tied with the Marie Antoinette Vogue spread?). To see the spread, see the pics below, and for some great animated versus reality pics of the dresses and designers.

This work on cassette tapes is entirely handmade, with a bit of work but so nostalgia… It so happened that I found a bunch of old cassettes at home; seeing them brought me back, in thought, to an earlier time, the 80s, and to me as a kid. In any case, I could not play them any more so resurrecting them sounded like a good idea…it was sound, it became visual! And I am pretty sure they are more happy now than in a shoebox 🙂

I think people from my generation relate to this work because many enjoy the funny side of it, the references. They are happy to see that these old cassette tapes managed to start a new life!” – Benoit Jammes.
