Worlds Collide

Sometimes, my dears, my worlds collide in the best possible way.

And sometimes, that collided and collaborative world makes total sense.

Today is one of those days.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk opens at The Barbican in London tomorrow and they had the sweetest media launch today – with Breton striped eclairs, done by PAUL Bakery (no visit to Paris or London would be the same without a treat from PAUL).

Edible Breton stripes. Merci Paul.

You already know of my love for JPG, plus I think the Barbican is a wonderful next stop on the exhibition’s journey that started at the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, curated by MBAM’s rock star curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot (with whom I had the loveliest conversation at MFIT’s symposium a few years ago). It’s been a ground-breaking exhibition for so many reasons (I’ll have a post on it soonish) but I thought at a time when so many museums are trying so hard with their marketing efforts, this was just a simple and lovely way to get the word out. Let the Breton-wearing, Breton-eating selfie races begin…

I wasn’t there in person – the exhibition has eluded me as yet for one reason or another – but am planning on heading to the Barbican before it ends on August 25th. If the stars somehow align, I might even be there for JPG’s live chat next week. Oh, and those eclairs? You can get them at all PAUL UK locations starting tomorrow.

Can someone FedEx me some, svp?
