Amy Winehouse is still an unavoidable source of inspiration in the fashion world. Gaultier knows it. And he knows it so well, that he couldn’t let to pass by this mythical figure without being noticed himself. That’s how Gaultier is: extravagant, charming. In one word, unique. Just as Amy.
Paris will not forget the show of authenticity, the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring Summer 2012 couture catwalk, a real ode to Amy: Gaultier ilustrated Amy’s style in each model that shined in the catwalk that seemed too small for such bright. The references of the eternal singer that had blues in her soul were highlighted by a mix of objects that characterized Amy so well: her anarchic spirit can be found in the irreverent look, challenging the society’s view. The beehive wigs, tatto0s, heavy eyeliner, the round earring and the cigarette in the hand represent her delightfull unique style.
