EYES IN™ Magazine Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk was blown away by Charlie Le Mindu's spectacular performance at the infamous Crazy Horse nightclub in Paris. The Male Gaze has cemented Charlie le Mindu's position as one of France's most influential voices.
The Male Gaze is an artistic movement from the raoring twenties which has inspired Charlie Le Mindu for his most recent collection constructed around the concept of the look. The look as an important tool of communication between people and as an intellectual motor to anticipate a situation. After the success of his first cabaret Paris Hait Gris at the Fondation Cartier last year, this season Charlie le Mindu has renewed his interest for the spectacle to present his Haute Coiffure collection during Paris Couture week. Lasting 30 minutes, the designer reveals 5 scenes rhythmed by the partitions of Kap Bambino, with videos and performances in the interlude. Filled with roticism, Charlie le Mindu imagines a dark show twisted by his muses, with the presence of the iconic dancer Irina Bouglione.
