Lots of exciting moments in fashion right now, as Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks have all come to an end, and Madrid´s is just commencing. NYC and London´s are beginning soon…I don´t even know where to start!
Right now I am really feeling Jean Paul Gaultier and his surprises for this years Paris Fashion Week runway show, so I suppose I will start there.
Jean Paul Gautlier gave a major shoutout to Amy Winehouse on h is runway for Paris Fashion Week. When you consider the late Amy Winehouse, she was a style icon, in her own way-the beehive, a sort of 50´s-60´s vibe, all while seeming edgy at the same time. Put a little bit of Jean Paul Gautlier twist in there and you´ve got some pretty amazing designs. See below. I was wowed; a lot of va-va voom in my opinion! What are your thoughts?
NOTE: Amy Winehouse´s family is actually very upset about this collection. They see it as Gautlier using her image to make money. Personally if I were her family I would feel honored that Amy would be portrayed as a fashion icon. However this is a touchy subject…all I know is that I LOVE the clothes.
(and back to the post on androgynous models…this could def be a dude!)
The woven detail and beading in this is incredible.
This is so fabulous! The expression on that models face perfectly fits the outfit!
