Dear Shaded Viewers,
Short, mute cinematic studies documented the landscape of the subject's face and were created by Gerard Malanga for the Adam Kimmel fall/winter collection. Fabrics and silhouettes were revived from the original art work shot from '63-'66 portraying the players from Andy Warhol's factory.
Who but Jean Paul Gaultier could break the non-existing laws of fashion? With energetic enthusiasm he proposed trans-generational tuxedos and suits. Who but JP could demolish gender identity and age? Masterfully he blurred masculinity under afro wigs and a beret. Parachute straps wrapped around trousers and jackets, simple sweaters had white gladiator sleeve open knit inserts. And, yes, Monsieur Gaultier like your models going down the runway with a glass of champagne, we all toast to your health, because the show is you.
