is not showing in New York.
But one of his recent creations was on display at meatpacking night spot, HOME, wearing other designers’ dresses. It was no couture coup, just the gloriously curvaceous casing of Landy Desir. Gaultier took his signature CLASSIQUE Eau de Parfum bottle one sensual step further in the fashioning of Landy’s lady-shaped bottle of cognac.
We met Valentine, the handsome designer of the pink strapless number pictured left. It was very Marilyn meets Material Girl Madonna with a decidedly modern twist to fit the bottle’s booty. He’s not showing a full collection but previewing a number of looks this fall while gearing up for a splashy debut in the 2008 season.
And the booze? Not cognac connoisseurs are we, but it was a luxe experience to sip the surprisingly smooth liquor while Guillaume #1 and Guillaume #2, the Frenchmen from Landy, charmed us into pledging lifelong loyalty to high-end cognac. The only downside to ending our day at HOME, not a single fashion faux pas to pan while we sat back and enjoyed our bottle service.
Shiny dressed socialites and urban prepsters enjoyed their scenester status. We enjoyed our buzz.
