Paris Fashion Week: Graffiti by Gaultier

By - Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Graffiti made an appearance at Paris Fashion Week, which started February 28th and ended today. Saturday night, at the much awaited Jean Paul Gaultier show, the French designer presented his Fall Winter 2012/2013 collection. Gaultier drew inspiration from downtown New York and Paris’ 80’s graffiti scene. The graffiti, revisited by the designer and printed on elegant tulle, silk and veil is accessorized with bourgeois furs and punky leather. Beyond the prints, Gaultier used a graffiti oriented color palette with lots of blue, green, golden, silver and black. Gaultier basically ties together a number of 80’s underground influences. “I made a collection under the influence of graffiti, reviewed by high fashion (…)” explains Jean-Paul Gaultier, “The long fox furs are also an effort to push the collection towards the graffiti aspect” he said. Graffiti has made an appearance on the runway earlier this season when Manish Arora invited hooded graffiti artists onto his runway as featured on 12ozProphet. Text: Lydia C Photos: Quintessence
