Turbanators Dominate Gaultier’s S/S 2013 Menswear Collection

jpgaultier28 tile 300x159 Turbanators Dominate Gaultiers S/S 2013 Menswear Collection Most of us know of Jean Paul Gaultier’s love for India. His collections over the times have seen inspiration drawn from India. Last evening when Gaultier showcased his Spring-Summer 2013 Menswear Collection in Paris, Turban wearing models walked out one-after-another, looking very much the Sikh young man.

He’s travelled the world and experienced every exotic culture, his appearance a swirl of cultural influences from East and West. Turbans, Mandarin collars and embelishments reflect this. On the more literal nautical front, flat square sailor collars were prominent. One even manifested, in intricately beaded form, on a black evening jacket.  Shirts and a slouchy short-sleeved jumpsuit were presented in a print that had a vintage sailor-tattoo appeal.

    Waris Ahluwalia and Vikram Chatwal helped make turbaned Sikhs look cool, spurning a huge fascination for Turbinators all over. Maybe Dr. Manmohan Singh did too..Yet I can’t help feel, that it’s the inherent honesty in Sikhs that’s all pervading and is such a magnetic force.
