Peter and Gerard make clothes for ten years. Each season’s outfits are inspired by the fantastic excesses of their muses: Artist Gertrude Stein’s dinners, Tonya Harding’s attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan, the request of Christina of Denmark to marry Henry VIII only when she’ll have a head to spare, the freckled eternal teen face of Sissy Spacek (covered in pig blood in De Palma’s Carrie or murderously innocent in Malick’s Badlands), the delusional Shelley Duval, the Guardian-reader-type righteous Candice-Marie from Mike Leigh’s Nuts in May etc. They are strong, they make mistakes, they dress well. Also contains essays by Emily King and Susannah Frankel.
