One of the things that always gets me in anything I look at is texture, especially if combined with colour. The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition is a real feast for the eyes when it comes to both, but the texture kind of becomes even more important… because everything is handmade. Every bead is painstankingly hand sewn in place. No detail is left unfinished or left to chance. The detail is fantastic and it’s well worth spending a few hours admiring it as so seldom we get to see beautifully made clothes like this, in a Primark universe.
