OMG: Jean Paul Gaultier's Collection Give Us Papercuts?
Now if you heard that French designer Jean Paul Gaultier (formerly head designer of Hermes) was coming round to the office to give you a makeover, you'd be happy right?
So we're guessing you wouldn't expect him to make clothes out of old newspapers (see pic). But that's just what Gaultier did!
According to a Women's Wear Daily report, the designer created new clothes for the staff at French newspaper Libération, made entirely from recycled newspapers. The result was a series of portraits for Libération. Gaultier too, is wrapped up in sheets of paper for the cover shot. But we're not sure whether to giggle or cringe at his exposed hairy leg!
The campaign, shot by Patrick Swirc features paper renditions of Gaultier's including a trench coat, a men's skirt and a bustier with a conical bra, modelled by newspaper staff. It's timed to run before a retrospective on Gaultier at The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
