Talking about coincidences.. The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition I missed it Paris a while ago, was opened in Seoul last week. The extensive showcase is covering Gaultier's whole career proving it's not only about the infamous cone bra.. Although I have to admit that the underwear section was my favourite of the exhibition.
His work was displayed Through such themes as “The Boudoir,” “The Odyssey,” “Skin Deep/X-rated,” “Punk Cancan,” “Urban Jungle,” “Metropolis” and “Les Mariees”. Original design sketches and garments were accompanied with video footages and photos by renowned photographers.
