Vogue on Jean Paul Gaultier
Novità in libreria: Carolyn Asome, "Vogue on Jean Paul Gaultier" (Quadrille Publishing Ltd., pagg. 160)
This book tracks the stellar career of maverick designer Jean Paul Gaultier from his first show in Paris in 1976, when he challenged the current ideals of beauty and promoted a style of fashion which embraced ethnic diversity and models of all shapes and sizes. Seen as an enfant terrible when he first burst on to the fashion scene, his titillating, provocative designs embrace corset dresses, conical bustiers, biker jackets paired with ballet tutus and skirts for men, along with classic fashion staples such as beautifully cut smoking jackets and trench coats.
