Keeping Up with the Fashionistas – Jean Paul Gaultier at the de Young
Type Jean Paul Gaultier into the interweb machine and you’ll get a bunch of images of a middle-aged man in a striped shirt. Then you’ll start to see clothing that Monsieur Gaultier has created over the past three decades. And you’ll begin to see many wonderous things. And you’ll become interested.
From this point you can research and study, explore and critique.
And I guarantee that you’ll find something that makes you think!
And I guarantee that you’ll find something you like!
Now I am NOT going to give you a lesson or a speech bout Gaultier. One, because I know exactly squat about him or fashion or couture. And two, because I am sure it’s all been done before.
I do want to show you some photographs that I took at the recent exhibit of Jean Paul Gaultier’s work that I visited at the M.H. de Young Museum in San Francisco.
