Drottningholms Slottsteater is over 250 years old and has a unique collection of decor and interiors from the 1700s. It is this imagery on which Maxjenny has based her collection, which will comprise many unique prints and creations.
The rumour says that the King Gustav the III’s, at that time, best male actor, Jacques-Marie Boutet de Monvel wanted to go back to France, to Comédie Française, where he actually had been the leading actor. Dark here in the north, bad food and no culture to talk about. Hello!? Understandable. But he was denied leave! King Gustav was worried about his French star and posted police officers outside Monvel´s home to make sure the actor would not disappear to France, oh la la dramaaa! The story then continues and say that after the summer season of 1786, he finally got the king´s permission to visit Paris-and then he never came back! What a story!
The interpretation here is that he is sat behind bars inside the dollhouse wich actually this theather can be seen as. A huge dollhouse. Or Monvel is looking in on us while he forge his schemes..
The long smokingcoat is classic straight in shape as a morning robe and has band to tie in the waist. The slippery feel makes this coat looking fantastic both open and closed. Is magnificent together with belonging pants in same print or just sexy dripped denims
