The melody still lingers. Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2012, a tribute to Amy Winehouse
This spring, the infamous beehive walked the catwalk. The collection took inspiration from the late singer’s signature 50s style and included pencil skirts and corset dresses.
Why the new muse? “Amy Winehouse was a true style icon,” Gaultier told reporters backstage. “What she stands for above all, is uniqueness. Both in music and the way she dressed, she mixed a great many influences.” Amy Winehouse has certainly left her mark, and only the future will tell how widespread and lasting her legacy is on the fashion world.
