LUXURY LOGO
Jason Alper

“If LEGO were a luxury brand, I imagine they would make things like this. I wanted to make something that had the look of sophistication with clean lines. The marriage of these two great icons is a match made in heaven. I wanted to use brands that couldn’t be more different but find a common ground between them. Having been both a child and a costume designer, this is a fitting homage to them both.”

Jason Alper has been a costume designer and stylist for the past 20 years, mainly in the world of comedy. In 2007 he moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to design costumes for movies and create art.

In the past decade, Jason has been an influencer in the world of popular culture, collaborating with Sacha Baron Cohen. He is known as a fearless costume designer with an artistic and irreverent eye, and for creating the iconic and memorable characters of Ali G, Borat and Bruno.

Always one to push the envelope, Alper made the decision to use his inventiveness by expressing his talents in a new medium, one that has always been at his core, art. His wry fusion of contemporary and classic icons is served up with the same satire and irony that has characterized his work as a costume designer.

Alper is from east London, England. Exposed and inspired by an array of cultures around him, his life was and is an ongoing dichotomy. 
 After his first sell out art show in Los Angeles, “It’s all Back On”, he has recently displayed new works entitled “Proletarian Drift & The Enfranchisement Of The Bourgeoisie In The 21st Century”, a collection of oil paintings and sculptures. “Since oil has received so much bad press lately, I felt that it was time to do something positive with it.”

BORAT AT THE V&A MUSEUM

November 4, 2011


BY RUPERT RUSSELL

LONDON – The Victoria and Albert Museum in London’s Knightsbridge is holding an exhibition of the 100 greatest movie costumes. Curated by costume designer Deborah Landis, wife of director John Landis of the cult classicsTrading Places and Ghost Busters, the exhibition will feature such as outfits as Dorothy’s dress from the Wizard of Oz and Charlie Chaplin’s outfit from The Tramp. Along with these famous ensembles of the silver screen, a more contemporary ensemble will be featured: the trademark grey, ill-fitting suit of Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Borat” character, that hopelessly naïve but always well-intentioned TV newsman from Kazakhstan. I caught up with Cohen’s costumer designer Jason Alper to find out how this iconic image came to be.

December 14, 2010

 

This past weekend, the holiday party circuit went into full swing; it is the only time when egg nog is acceptable and office parties abound.

Fortunately in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, Shepard Fairey provided the masses with a worthy artistic respite and bit of non-traditionalist fun. This month in his gallery, Subliminal Projects, he and curator Katherine B. Cone brought forth an alternative to the typical holiday cheer with their show “Wreck the Walls,” a mix of art both nostalgic and fresh….

30 artists converged on Subliminal for the event, including Jason Alper (costume designer of “Bruno”, “Borat” and “Ali G”)….
