Jean Paul Gaultier turns 60 today – it’s been an amazing fashion journey for him, giving us garments like the conical bra, and my personal favourite the iconic matelot sweater. He’s done more than just design clothes though, he is a lifestyle, which even includes having his own Evian bottled water, imagine that! I spotted these this weekend at Pune’s Oak Lounge, how cute!

This year apart from celebrating his 60th, a fashion retrospective (much like the Alexander McQueen exhibit I saw in NYC) was dedicated to him called ‘The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From Sidewalk to the Catwalk’. I thought I’d share with you some of the pictures I managed to find online of this exhibit. Wish I was in San Francisco this month, because the exhibit heads to the de Young Museum next Ah well.. Happy Birthday JPG!
