John Malkovich Will Present His Fashion Line at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival

Buried in the lineup for the 46th Annual Karlovy Vary Film Festival was an announcement that John Malkovich will hold a fashion show for Technobohemian, his "nontraditional" men's clothing line, using top Czech actors as his catwalk models.

Explaining the title on the Technobohemian website, Malkovich says,"'Technobohemian' is a phrase I read in a yet unpublished Italian novel. I lift it with the author's permission and I will endeavor to use it well."

Malkovich, who launched the line in 2009, said in a statement to the film festival:

Sometimes I draw inspiration from the cinema, sometimes I look at people on the street. There is a strong correlation between the job of the designer and the actor who takes on different roles each time transforming itself. I like to experience the transformation even in the clothes we design, every transformation is basically a confirmation that we are constantly being born."

In 2009, Malkovich was honored with the Karlovy Vary Crystal Globe for Outstanding Artistic Contribution to World Cinema.
