Narzipan's Clown Stylee

Narzipan gets serious about Clowns!

Great question Heath! We are serious about clowns because they are fun and a key influence in our Narzipan Streetwear collection. We take inspiration from the jazzy patterns, accessories, the make-up and the overall quirkiness and individuality that all good clowns possess.

Narzipan's Clown Couture Vibe

Below we take you through our 3 biggest influences: Bow ties, Harlequin pattern and make-up.

Bow Ties!

Cracking polkadots Gromit!
They have been around hundreds of years, but they are not always in fashion. Here are some cool bow tie wearing celebrities making the trend cool.

The shy and conservative Miss Jay

Cat Chic!
I ain't no clown. Me pussycat!

They don't come any cooler than singer Janelle Monae
Janelle's circus vibe means she also good at keeping it on the tightrope

Ryan Gosling cuts a dash in his
He'll Drive you crazy

Harlequin Stylee

Kelis: Number of times you can trick her = 1

Harlequin style is diamond-patterned and multi-coloured. It's normally associated with a jester or joker costume and is often accompanied by a black mask.

Loved this more relaxed style of Alexa

Cher Lloyd wore this look on the X Factor tour 2011

Burlington have a good take on this look but we've yet to see a skater in this attire

Clown Make-up!
Cirque du Soleil are the renegade masters at clown makeup

If you like my hair....
Can I get a "boom"?!

Violinist Hahn-Bin is an artist in so many ways

A child protege he has entertained and moved the world since the age of 12

There's more than a touch of Marilyn Manson influence in this magazine shoot

Alexander McQueen portrayed sorrow in 2009
Don't worry, be happy

Lipstick can be used to show arousal and attract guys

In medieval times lipstick was banned by the church as it was seen as 'an incarnation of Satan'

Maybe the church was right..

This is what happens when you privatise the NHS
batman joker heath ledger
"I'll get the waiting lists down for you alright"

This is how Narzipan puts the whole look together


Katy Perry rocks the clown look perfectly

Dumbo is our favourite clown btw

We also like the Mime Thug from Tangled
