Jean Paul Gaultier at the De Young Museum

[slideshow]

Visited JP Gaultier show at the De Young Museum San Francisco and it was a sight.  Couture at it’s finest.  You really get the sense that his clothes are a playground for his imagination.  The exhibit was sexy, fun, atmospheric, intimate with a touch of vintage accolades and modern technology.  The models you see are just mannequins with digitally projected faces that speak, cool and eerie!  Although I found some pieces to be gaudy, as should be expected, many of his designs were quite innovative displaying several series of his work from Native American styling’s to the British Punk scene.  The exhibition also showcased some outfits from the movie ‘The 5th Element’.  Gaultier shows his love and complex research of many different cultures world wide.  This show is a must see for lovers of fashion.  The show runs until August 19th 2012:
