Depending on how old you are, or possibly your morals, you will know Jean Paul Gaultier from one of two places – glossy fashion magazine previews and reviews of catwalks and fashion weeks, or Eurotrash, with Antoine De Caunes. I know him from the latter. I was a kid in the Nineties. I would have been around seven when I first saw Eurotrash. That may seem a bit wrong, but honestly, I don’t think I had a clue what they were on about half the time.
From this, I loved him, I thought he was amazingly funny looking. I didn’t know he was a designer, that came much later. I love his designs. I love that he did ALL the costumes for The Fifth Element, and personally checked over all the actors and extras on the set. And now I love THESE –
Anyone who knows me, will know I absolutely love collecting sweet wrappers and drinks bottles. These are no exception. I shall be buying two of each – one set to open, drink, and reseal, and another set to keep bottled up, like a fine wine.
I don’t particularly care for the Madonna – boob – esque female shape, but I love the Gallic one on the left. My other half says it looks very sailory. I say it’s French. And i’m right, because I know 😛
Though I do expect to pay around a pound a bottle for them. I don’t mind, it’s not like I can afford any of his clothes . . . yet . . .
