Sessilee = Grace: More Eighties At Couture

-------

With Jean-Paul Goude doing the rounds this week and Inès de la Fressange at Gaultier Paris, it seems like a full-on eighties couture revival is upon us. Alexandre Vauthier, former first assistant to Gaultier and a veteran of Thierry Mugler’s atelier, narrowed his vision on Grace Jones. A pointy shoulder formed the main silhouette story and Vauthier took it to extremes, sending out the kind of sharp angles that of course recall the decades-old heyday of Mugler and Gaultier (well, actually, also Gaultier’s current day) as well as the more recent revival kick-started by Martin Margiela. Still, it was somewhat of a time warp. Sessilee Lopez with an ultra-cinched waist and shoulders out to there was pure Grace incarnate. Not that we minded. When it comes to full-on fashion drama, we’re slaves to the rhythm.

    I don’t mind either that gorgeous Sessilee Lopez was a kind of Grace Jones incarnate. I loved Gaulthier’s show. The 80′s was a great decade I was a slave to the rhythm then and I still am now. So it doesn’t make me sad to wear this look again. What did I say? I already do for almost a year: wearing my vintage Mugler jacket! Yes, I knew it the time was right…..
