Andrew and I survived mostly unscathed from the destructive and bizarre derecho that hit the DC region (and beyond) on Friday night. We felt like we won the lottery when our power was restored 20 hours after the storm. And we hit the jackpot again when Comcast got our cable and wifi up and running by Sunday evening.
For a little escapism from the surreal weekend that was—as well as from our current sweltering heat wave—here’s my final post about the Gaultier exhibition in San Francisco where the temperatures stayed in the low 70s with no humidity. (Yes, it feels like a distant dream now.) These are the looks that captured my imagination the most.
As a big fan of knitwear, I liked Jean Paul Gaultier’s version of a cozy sweater:
Pearly Buttons as Pinstripes:
Camo Whammy (reminded me of this previous post):
Flight of Fancy:
“La Mariée” was breathtaking up close. It was the showstopper.
P.S. I bought the poster version of the Craig McDean photo to hang in our bedroom.
“The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” runs through August 19, 2012.
