Jean Paul Gaultier/From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk

Some weeks ago I visited the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibiton “From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” in the Kunsthalle München (Munich) and I was truly stunned.
The exhibition gives a lot of information about the person as well as about his work. There are texts and dresses, as well as videos.
The shown dresses are really amazing. I was fascinated seeing all those details in real life and the many different materials which were processed. For some pieces also the working hours were displayed and sometimes it’s just crazy. 😀
Another thing that interested my was how Gaultier smudges the line between femininity and virility.

Here are some pictures to give you an impression:

Of course it’s best to go and see it yourself!
So if you’re in or near Munich and can spare some time, it’s definitely worth going!
The exhibition still runs until february 14th 2016.

Have already visited?

I just got hold on these adorable homeslippers by Marc O’Polo and I think they’re far to gorgeous not to share! They’re also available in pink and black, but I’m a total grey fan, so here I go. As it is slowly getting colder I’ve been thinking about a comfy pair of house shoes a few times and these totally got me, especially the cozy inside.

The look

In this post I’ll show you a look that I like to where, when I nee something a bit more chic than my daily outfit, but still somehow casual.

The center piece of the outfit is a black SET blazer, which I really love. It has a quite short cut, but that’s what makes it so peppy. Especially all those buttons on the sleeves give it that little twist.

With it I wear I light shirt from Saint Tropez. I like it, because it’s simple, but chic and the crease in the front gives it a nice little extra touch.

I like to compare those pieces with a dark jeans and depending on the weather and the occasion I decide on the shoes. I think shoes are able to have an huge impact on any outfit. It’s just this last touch, which shows what you are going to do.

My everyday bag is from Micheal Kors. I really love it, because quite a lot of things fit into it! A nice plus is that not many others have this specific bag. 😉 The shoulder strap makes it also very comfortable for a long day and black works with nearly every outfit.
