Mainstream Meets Alternative: Jean-Paul Gaultier, Spring 2011

The spine-like structure of the back of this jacket bears I think, an obvious resemblance to body harnesses much in the favour of certain Fetish people; this nudge towards an underground culture being present in a prestigious mainstream piece intrigues me immensely. Not often does one stumble into mainstream formal wear so reminiscent of something nearly exclusively present in alternative aesthetics.

This particular collection contained quite a lot of pleasantly queer outfits, styling and even models. It is definitely worth taking a look at.
