The Devil is the most popular comic book series in Italy, the first issue of which was released back in 1962 thanks to the sisters Angela and Luciana Giussani. The plot revolves around the brilliant and fearsome thief Devil, who is often inspired to horrible and at the same time impeccably organized crimes by his beloved named Eva Kant.
Eva Kant in the comic “The Devil”
Eva’s style throughout 800 issues of the comic, as well as in its animated adaptation and even in the 1968 film by Mario Bava, was distinguished by a minimalistic exaggerated sex appeal and also reflected her freedom-loving nature. The seductive blonde villain wore a tight bun, and in choosing clothes she preferred black things both in everyday life and during malicious robberies.
It is important to clarify that Kant was far from wearing sweatshirts with stretched T-shirts – the thief’s wardrobe consisted of tight overalls, evening dresses with dizzyingly deep cutouts and silk combinations of ebonite shades.
Eva Kant would definitely like the collection of the spring-summer 2020 season. They clearly show the general trend – sensual forms, tight-fitting silhouettes and a lot of the dark night color adored by Eve. If you don’t believe me, check out the photos from the shows of Alexander Wang, Haider Ackermann, Longchamp, Mugler and Saint Laurent – “catsuits” in the spirit of Eva Kant are very popular among designers.
