Jean Paul Gaultier A/W 2012

Jean Paul Gaultier A/W 2012

This brilliant line accents furs in shades of pastel and natural colors worm as they would be during 1920's/30's. This line weaved components of 1920's fashion mixed with dominatrix-esque caged garments. The women's head pieces were inspired by those worn during the 20's/30 era focusing on the beaded vails and top hats that men worn during those years. 
The men's line brings in a new head piece which is a turban. Found among a few men within this collection as well as various other A/W 2012 collections. (post depicting this very trend is soon to come).


Living in San Francisco, I had the blessed opportunity to see the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit at the de Young Museum. 
This exhibit is worth traveling hundreds of miles for, in my opinion. You are able to really get an idea of how much of a genius Jean Paul Gaultier is. There are dozes upon dozes of his original pieces being displayed on mannequins, some of which have faces projected onto them giving making them freakishly lifelike.  Along with fashion design Jean Paul Gaultier is a fantastic creative director and this exhibit was filled with his photography that has been featured in all major fashion magazines for over almost 3 decades.
