Fashion: Museo di Storia Contemporanea – Christian Weber. For his Collection No. 3, entitled, Hollywood: City of Broken Dream, Christian Weber, found inspiration in the L.A. of the 1940’s and was especially influenced by the firm characters and ambiguous charms of American film director, Maya Deren and Marlene Dietrich. The collection pivots on opposing shapes: shrunk and wide, soft and clean-cut, - yet opposites blend as the faces of the same image. The shirts are matched with a thin black tie with Marlene’s famous statement “Glamour is what I sell, it’s my stock in trade.” which is also the common denominator of the whole collection.
