Jean Paul Gaultier's tribute to Pierre Cardin

Jean Paul Gaultier gave a great show with a tribute to Pierre Cardin during Paris Couture Week. Pierre Cardin is a legend in the fashion industry, the designer is known for his avant-garde style and his Space Age designs. And not only! I met Pierre Cardin during his visit in Athens for a theatre performance, see my review on his visit. And he left a huge impression on me. Reading about Jean Paul Gaultier's tribute it brought back many happy memories. Not only meeting Pierre Cardin but also meeting Jean Paul Gaultier. Two well known fashion designers, full of positive energy and so interested in talking with me! So down to earth, many designers could learn from them!

Jean Paul Gaultier's first job in the 1960s at the age of 17 was with Pierre Cardin and in WWD I read Cardin's reaction: “It was superb, I haven’t seen all his shows, but this one won me over completely with its creativity, its originality, with no vulgarity at all.”

I selected these two looks.

I love this pinstripe look. The pants, the top it is so sophisticated. A must-have for me!

This gown is just amazing, I love the cut, the print and the styling!

The backdrop during the show is by Bridget Riley. I enjoyed the moving geometric forms.
Bridget Riley's paintings of the 1960s are iconic and is the base of the Op Art movement, which exploited optical illusions to make the two-dimensional surface of the painting seem to move, vibrate, and sparkle.
