I have been for many years a regular attendance at the Paris Haute Couture fashion shows. Haute Couture fascinates me because it is the most artistic and sophisticated expression of fashion. In this illustration I drew a fabulous design by Jean Paul Gaultier in which the stripes of the navy style top came out of the garment itself and became tapes that dragged on the ground, generating a wonderful trompre-l’oeil effect. I have always felt devotion for the navy striped t-shirts and Gaultier is the designer who has been more and more involved in this concept, that is why this look made me especially excited.
I set my design in one of those infinite landscapes from Costa Brava that Dalí painted to emphasize the surrealistic, magical and navy environment of the garment.
