I love Jean Paul Gaultier's tribal collections. The colors, the prints, the gauzy fabrics--to me, the perfect summer wear. The palette and the subject matter are so similar to Paul Gauguin's paintings from his time in Tahiti, and it's no secret that I'm obsessed with expressionist painting as well.
Paul Gauguin's Ia Orana Maria (1891), Where Are You Going (1893), and Mahana No Atua (1894).
I'm wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier swimsuit, mesh miniskirt from the Salvation Army, and a Zuba Africa hat. These pictures were taken on the pier in Minnesott Beach, North Carolina.
