gaultier exhibit Crochet at Gaultier Exhibit

At the end of May I did an overview of crochet in the Jean Paul Gaultier collection and I promised you at that time that whenever I got around to going to the Gaultier exhibit at the De Young Museum I’d take photos of the crochet there to share with you. Pozzo, I just went and here are those images:

The Crocodile Crochet Dress

Jump past the break to see the rest

I featured this dress in my original Gaultier crochet roundup but it was so much better to see it in person. The yarn is thick and wooly and almost looks like it’s straight out of the 1970s even though it’s a fairly recent design. Normally that would not be a good thing but it totally works with the texture of the dress.

Jeux d’artifices” Abito

The placard for this dress at the exhibit told me that its from the 2009-2010 (fall/winter) Movie Stars collection. It is acrocheted dress with net, pheasant feathers, and snakeskin, embroidered with satin stitches and beads”. It took 110 hours to make it. What I’m amazed by with this one is how seamlessly the crochet and feathers are worked together in garment with perfect draping.

Irish Point Lace

The placard next to this photo, which was published in the April 2009 issue of W magazine, says that this dress is made from Irish Point Lace. I’m not familiar with what that term means and Googling it just brought up a bunch of stuff about Irish lace that hints that it may mean crochet or it may mean some other type of Irish needlepoint. In entrambi i casi, it’s in the same family and I think it’s a beautiful dress.

The Knit Dress, Ma …

This dress is knit, non all'uncinetto, but it’s one of my very favorite pieces in the entire exhibit. And just because this is a crochet blog doesn’t mean I can’t include something knit now and then! icon smile Crochet at Gaultier Exhibit

Inoltre, there is definitely some other technique going on here with laceworkI couldn’t tell if it was actually crochet (even though I got so close to it that I thought the security people were going to remove me) but it doesn’t look exactly like knit on the floral motifs either.

I feel like I want to say more about this exhibit because it was a really, really wonderful exhibit but I think it put me at a loss for words. It has stunning camera effects that make the mannequins look like they are alive and talking to you (creepy, but amazing). It has several rooms of stunning fashions spanning various eras of the Gaultier career. There are some pieces there that made me shiver. If you’re in San Francisco, go see it.
