Look 3: The Birds

Autumn Winter 2019 / 2020

This is where the prince sets off on his intergalactic journey, into the peculiar miniature worlds of various adults; the embroidery of the coat references the flock of birds that whisks him from planet to planet. 

 

Here, the prince’s trademark mint green is introduced, following the iconic illustration of the little explorer in a light green shirt and long pants with yellow scarf. Absent of cumbersome shoulderpads, this look is significantly more streamlined than its predecessors, speaking to the freedom of flight.

“In order to make his escape, I believe he took ad-vantage of a migration of wild birds. On the morning of his departure, he put his planet in order…
“Good-bye,” he said to the flower.

“Good-bye,” he repeated.
The flower coughed. But not because she had a cold.

“Of course I love you,” the flower told him. “It was my fault you never knew. It doesn’t matter. But you were just as silly as I was. Try to be happy . . . Put that glass thing down. I don’t want it anymore.”

“Then she added, “Don’t hang around like this; it’s irritating. You made up your mind to leave. Now go.”
For she didn’t want him to see her crying. She was such a proud flower. . . .” (Source)
