Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 seems to be quite inspired by the fetish community. Let’s take a look at some highlights from the catwalk:
It’s being described as having an edgy rock n’ roll glamor look and one cannot miss the spirit of Ziggy Stardust and the Spider from Mars hanging about the show. Rock music does have its own relationship to SM because love songs are so often about the pain and anguish of emotion and long extended metaphors about how far you’ll go in the name of lust. Listen to the song, “Under My Thumb” by the Rolling Stones and tell me I’m wrong about this. Thing is, if I can mentally match some of those images to fetish photography then it isn’t just about the music baby, it’s about what happens behind it.
