Paris is seen as one of the fashion capitals of the world, but now it’s also home to some rather dapper wildlife.
Artist Julien Nonnon projects images of well-dressed wildlife onto Parisian buildings, adding plenty of colour to the landscape at night.
Described as an ‘urban safari’, the collection of ‘digital graffiti’ depicts a wide variety of animals in interesting ourfits, from a cheetah in a bomber jacket to a besuited eagle.
The project has a serious message behind it, according to Nonnon: ‘[it] question[s] our ambivalent desire to be both unique and wanting to belong to a well-defined group. In our way of dressing, we express our vision of the world, while indirectly revealing our social position and financial power. fashion is nothing other than a means of communication, of integration and belonging to a group.’
