January 23 marks exactly six months as from the life of the notorious Amy Winehouse left. It would seem that such a day is necessary to forget the bad and remember the best of everything that once happened in the life of this talented singer, but there has not been without scandal. The culprit was the spring-summer collection of designer Jean Paul Gaultier, the creation of which was inspired by the image of Amy that led to the horror of her family.
The collection, which is presented to the French couturier Fashion Week in Paris, became a tribute to 'brilliant and immensely talented, but unfortunately too early deceased singer. " Style Amy viewed everywhere: updo "beehive" broad arrow on the cat's eyes, which are so fond of soul diva, and the clothes in the style of the 60s - all reminiscent of the image of Amy. In addition, the models took to the catwalk to the hits of the singer.
Amy Winehouse was a fashion icon, she has a wonderful sense of style, combined the amazing clothes in their images. It has had a great influence on modern fashion.
Despite the fact that the collection was indeed very «Amy-like», it is clearly seen the handwriting Gauthier, who, as we know, there is no analogue in the world of high fashion. Shocking designer brought to the catwalk models in symmetrical rows of lush skirts, candid lace corset, headpiece and veil with a thin pencil skirts with a glossy sheen. As expected, the collection was made with characteristic for high fashion in general and in particular for Gauthier theatricality, so wear things like this dare only such monsters from the world of fashion as Daphne Guinness or Anna Dello Russo. Well, or at worst Gaga ...
Do you recognize? It Andrej Pejic. The most beautiful woman of all the models on the catwalk.
The success of the collection was deafening, trendy outfits critics called a work of art, but the family of Amy Winehouse, and in particular her father Mitch, who, as befits a normal parent who doted on his daughter, criticized the show by Jean Paul Gaultier:
We were shocked to see photos from the show. The whole family is still mourning the death of Amy, and we were not prepared for the fact that her image will be used for the sale of clothing. We are very proud that Amy had an impact on the world of fashion, but the models strutted down the catwalk in a black veil and a cigarette in his mouth - a bad taste. No one even asked us permission to do to arrange this show.
In addition, Mitch Winehouse blamed Gauthier that he "glamuriziroval not the best of times in the life of a singer" and "presented her image is not in the best light».
Well, in the words of the father of the singer has some truth - Jean Paul Gaultier is indeed crossed the line and made a show out of place in the context of this situation, but Daddy Winehouse should better monitor the health of her daughter and did not close its eyes to its way of life, so as not to rant about it after her death.
