Yes, I’m name-dropping here!
Years ago I bought that Jean-Paul Gaultier lace-knit shirt at an outlet store. I was always very careful with it, but one day a a gash appeared in the front. Luckily the yarn wasn’t torn, just stretched out, but for the longest time I just couldn’t figure out how to fix it.
UNTIL I happened to come across the artwork of Jane Perkins who uses buttons and other recycled materials to create beautiful “paintings”. Check them out here!
Inspired by Jane and to honor Jean-Paul Gaultier’s playful style I rummaged through my box of buttons and other little bits and bobs and got to work, and now I have a more than unique Jean-Paul Gaultier shirt! I’m sure Jean-Paul would approve.
I’m also sure people believe me when I tell them the shirt is by Jean-Paul Gaultier, buttons and all.
(People will believe anything if the name associated with it is impressive enough..)
