Plaid is popular in Paris fall and winter fashions. This photo shows a vitrine in another store on rue Cambon.
On Friday, Jordana and I visited the Jean-Paul Gaultier "Defile" exhibition at the Musee de la Mode et du Textile, Musee des les Arts Decoratifs, Paris. The elaborately-designed clothes and costumes are the result of a ten-year collaboration between Gaultier and dance choreographer Regine Chopinot. Chopinot donated costumes Gaultier designed between 1983-1994 to the museum's permanent collection. No photographs were allowed, hence the above borrowed from a French fashion layout.
We also visited the jewlery collection, which featured some of the most astonishingly beautiful pieces either Jordana or I have seen. Again, photographs were forbidden, but I managed to sneak in a few, sans flash. While the photographs are not the best quality, at least you can get an idea of the unique workmanship involved in each piece. This comb is studded with diamonds and cabuchon emerald scarabs.
Another decorative haircomb made of tortoiseshell, ivory and white coral.
An ornate bracelet with big diamonds, enamel and 18-karat gold.
