The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier…Part 5: Urban Jungle

 

United Kingdom(Great Britain)

 

Today we will visit the ‘Urban Jungle’ section that is part of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier… exhibition at the Barbican Centre in London. The designs here were inspired by different countries and  their cultures such as the Chinese, Mongolians, Africans, Hussars, Peruvians and Hasidic Jews. It’s a mix of cultures, styles and haute culture craftsmanship at it’s best.

Dziś odwiedzimy dział o nazwie “Urban Jungle” będący częścią wystawy The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier… mającej miejsce w Barbican Centre w Londynie. Przedstawione w niej kreacje inspirowane są przeróżnymi kulturami od chińskiej, afrykańskiej po mongolską, peruwiańską czy żydowską. To istna mieszanka stylów i wysokiego krawiectwa w najlepszym wydaniu.
