Ancient Egypt

05 Jun

JPG Resort 15

Some patterns in the Jean Paul Gaultier Resort 2015 Collection make reference to hieroglyphs from ancient Egypt.

Other ancient Egypt-inspired collections : Issa Spring/Summer 2014 (the starting point of this collection, which featured motifs based on the Eye of Horus, was ancient Egypt), Michael Angel Spring/Summer 2012 (this collection paid tribute to the civilization from ancient Egypt).

To read about other ancient Egypt-inspired collections, search for the « Egypt » post that I have published on June 11, 2013.
