Fashion + Art: Jean Paul Gaultier Pain Couture

Image source here.

Walking past the Farmers' Market today (but not going in: disapprove as you please, but give me the supermarket instead - or preferably the Harrods food halls - any day!) I suddenly remembered about Jean Paul Gaultier's Pain Couture (Bread Couture) installation which was exhibited in Paris in 2004. Combining two French obsessions, namely bread and fashion, Gaultier designed sweeping gowns, accessories, and even one of his signature conical bras all in bread.

Would have liked to have visited it... unfortunately there don't seem to be any high-res images online either.

  2. come on man! i don't know how things are in Europe, but in the States I definitely support buying meat and produce locally from Farmer's Markets. sure, it can be smelly, cramped, and anything BUT glamorous, haha, but when you buy a package of mass produced meat from a grocery store do you know where it actually comes FROM? i don't think you wanna know (but if you do, rent the DVD "Food Inc"). nevertheless, we each have our own decisions to make. cool post!
