We have never wished we could work a turban so hard in our lives.
Jean Paul Gaultier always was obsessed with nautical themes, so it’s no surprise to see them again in this collection, albeit with some serious twists. This to us, is fashion design in its pure form. It’s intricate, it’s witty, it’s impeccably tailored and it tells a story. It makes you think; literally. We’ve always been huge fans of his work and we think that with age and experience he’s really letting go of any restraints or conventions when it comes to his designs and collections. LOVE every single look, from the shorts with the detachable skirts to the Indian-inspired tuxedos, to the “cage” blazer and vest. LOVE IT ALL for being so unconventional and yet so beautiful that we can’t stop looking at it all. Don’t ask ,”Who would wear this?” Who cares who would wear it? The point is, it’s beautiful. Do you go into an art gallery and ask “Who would hang this over their sofa?” No, you don’t.
At least we hope you don’t.
