America’s most beloved Beagle, Snoopy, and his sister, Belle, are getting the fashion treatment for the second time, as part of the “Peanuts” comic strip’s 65th anniversary.
It was in 1984, when designers such as Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lagerfeld and many other notable names outfitted the Charles Schulz-created siblings in a “Snoopy for Fashion” for exhibition for Louvre and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.
Now, according to WWD, the “Peanuts” pups are to be outfitted again for the 30th Anniversary of the original “Snoopy for Fashion” exhibition.
Both Betsey Johnson and Diane von Furstenberg participated in the first exhibition 30 years ago, and both designers will return for a second round with Dries Van Noten, Calvin Klein Collection, Isabel Marant, Rodarte and others.
2014’s “Snoopy and Belle in Fashion” exhibition, which will feature the vinyl siblings dressed in designer duds, will launch during New York Fashion week on September 6 at the New Museum’s Sky Room.
Hang on Snoopy, Snoopy hang on. We’ll be there to see you, and your comic-couture, at Fashion Week.
