Jean Paul Gaultier

 

Today I want to share a post with you, totally different from what you’re used to from me. I went to an exhibition in Rotterdam, with the work of Jean Paul Gaultier. And it was really incredible.This man has a wonderful way of using different techniques and shapes, and working them into an item with lots of detail and of course an unique look.

One of the first things that come to mind when you mention his name, are of course the stripes in sailor’s clothes. But he uses them in such a different way:

Like above in a beautiful evening gown, or below, with lace.

There was amazing knit- and crochet work,

Amazing pleats:

And can you see what this is??

You really had to look up very close to see:

And some more amazing beadwork,

I feel very lucky to have seen all this, and I can only hope you like this little collage of pictures.

Groetjes, Dorien

Oh, prachtig. Stuk voor stuk kunstwerkjes. Wat een werk zeg al die kraaltjes.

Jij hebt tenminste weer genoten en misschien nog wat ideetjes opgedaan.

Groetjes, Monique

Hi Dorien,
I was lucky enough to see the exhibit in San Francisco when it was there. So magnificent. I too was in awe of his talent and vision. I was so inspired and still think about the pieces that were displayed. Thanks for sharing...
