Seven pages and not one mention of Gaultier! Catastrophe! Oh well, I guess I will become his official Styleforum standard bearer. I really like Gaultier and have for quite a long time. Despite the fact that he is no longer the flavor of the month he continues on from year to year putting out fantastic quality clothing and staying true to himself even if it means just slight tweaking of a familiar form over the years. My greatest disappointment is that you can't buy his menswear anywhere in the U.S. Occasionally you might find his stripped t's somewhere like Opening Ceremony, but his runway stuff is just not available. I even called his distributor in NY, Aeffe and they confirmed that it just isn't carried but that they hoped to have it soon, something about distribution problems, but she wouldn't elaborate. So, it's off to Paris once a year or so to get my fix. I think another reason he may not be on the radar screen as much is that he doesn't do much advertising, with the exception of his fragrances, which is quite remarkable in a field that is so heavily dependent on it, and therefore his merch isn't pushed as much in any of the "magazines that matter". Oh well, despite the naysayers I will always have a spot in my heart for his vision.
My boyfriend is a big Gaultier fan and saw the exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Modern Art; when he got back he showed my some pics and I'm jealous that I wasn't able go with him. I'd love to see some posted here, especially some older stuff that's difficult to find online.
Very good (and lengthy) article on Gaultier,

If he was still working in non-sports/tech fashion I think he would be the second designer whose clothes I would probably buy without hesitation. So much imagination, research and detail goes into the construction of his clothes and he seems like a pretty down-to-earth sort of fellow as well. The fact that he does some kick ass ilustrations for his clothing and has based collections on things as diverse as a New Orleans marching band to the pantheon of Hindu gods is just the icing on a very delicious cake.
