Emperor’s New Clothes, the
(999 items available)
The Emperor has no clothes, but that's not the reason he is lacking in elegance! In this reinterpretation of The Emperor's New Clothes, Steven Guarnaccia adds and hides details and tributes to the great names in fashion among his illustrations and reminds us of the charm of the dandies of bygone days. The Emperor and his courtiers interpret The Emperor's New Clothes with garments that will remind more attentive readers of those worn by Mick Jagger and the Beatles in the 1960s and 1970s, men's shoes by famous English brands, hats worn by unforgettable crooners and boots like those worn by Elton John during his glittering career. What doesn't change, however, is the moral of the fairy tale: here too a child is the first to exclaim "The Emperor has no clothes!", forcing everyone, including the illustrious model, to admit that they were being mocked for their arrogance. Everything is illustrated with crisp lines and colourful drawings with the unmistakable style and vintage feel of Steven Guarnaccia.
