Fab Ad: Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 2007

I have to say, these ads are pretty intense. Believe it or not, that's Gemma Ward under there. I'm not sure how I feel about the muzzle-like knit on her face - I'm sure it has some underlying meaning, but I don't like the symbolism of a woman being muzzled. Especially because I'm not sure what it has to do with the collection's theme: the Scottish highlands. The clothes on the other hand - you know I am loving plaids right now and Gaultier continues to be a mastermind in that department. What do you all think?!

The ads were shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and more from this campaign can be seen here.

It's fun to look at. Wearable, probably not. Maybe a piece here and there. But who cares! It's runway!

Whatever Gautier, too dramatic. Focus on the clothing next time.

I don't get it and the clothing looks ugly. Would never wear anything like it.

*yawn* in a world where torture porn has taken over movies, and nothing is shocking anymore, Jean Paul is becoming obselete and this is his last gasp.

I actually think the muzzle is more a political allusion than a masochistic one. I think they're trying to make a statement about the state of free speech rather than trying to create a real subversive image. The muzzle is extremely strage looking, but at least it doesn't look physically painful. It does bother me that the man isn't wearing one though, although maybe that's part of the concept as it's more common/socially acceptable for men to make their opinions and ideas heard.
