Jean Paul Gaultier Magic
Alright y'all, one of the most magical things I've ever seen happened right down the street from my apartment! The Brooklyn Museum of Art is famous for its collections, but the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit was breath taking. There are no words to describe the beauty and imagination displayed on the fifth floor of the museum. I've never felt more inspired to create a menswear collection, write a book and just create art in general. Uh-mazing it was. The pictures don't do the exhibit justice, but hopefully you'll get an idea of how awe-inspiring this is. Enjoy.
Aside from the majesty of the clothes the entire exhibition was just ridiculous (in a good way). The mannequins had projected faces that spoke to you or would sing or give attitude and each room was decorated to the T, adding so much to the entire experience. There were so many collections I didn't know how to control myself on snapping these pics. As you'll see coming up my favorite section was the Punk section. So freaking fantastic. Innovation should be Jean Paul's middle name. The use of found objects and general attention to detail is just outrageous, I mean soup can lids for a belt?! Talk about thinking outside of the box!
I know people say denim on denim is a "fashion faux pas" but you've never seen denim done like this.
Like I said before there were so many amazing looks it was hard to pick so few to blog about. I have to say Jean Paul has outdone himself and it was amazing to see how fashion forward he is. He had looks on display from the 70's that were in style with todays trends! So mind blowing. Again, I recommend that you all stop whatever it is you're doing, come to Brooklyn and check this exhibit out. You will not be disappointed. Lastly, I would like to apologize for the quality of these photos. I didn't think photography would be aloud so I had to use my phone for all these works of art. Thanks for checking this post out and I hope it inspires you all to do something amazing! Peace, love and chicken grease.
