Jean-Paul Goude

Cushnie et Ochs Resort 15

The junglelike feel of the Cushnie et Ochs Resort 2015 Collection is based on Jean-Paul Goude’s photograph of Naomi Campbell, running alongside a cheetah, taken from the editorial « Wild Things », published in the September 2009 issue of « Harper’s Bazaar ».

Other Jean-Paul Goude-inspired collections : Dior by Bill Gaytten Couture Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Jean-Paul Goude’s images were referenced in this show), James Millar Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (Jean-Paul Goude’s chaotic photographic oeuvre was one of the influences of this collection), Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2013 (some models in the background of this show took poses which imitated Grace Jones on her 1985 « Island Life » album cover, shot by Jean-Paul Goude), Rick Owens Spring/Summer 2004 (this show paid homage to Jean-Paul Goude and René Gruau), Roland Mouret Spring/Summer 2004 (the work that Jean-Paul Goude did with Grace Jones in the ’80s, mixed with the powerful sensuality of Peter Lindbergh’s photographs, have influenced this show).

    The string play in some of the swimwear this year adds so much style.

      You’re so right ! Maybe it isn’t good for tan lines but it’s so stylish indeed !

    This model is scary thin.

      I guess that, for Cushnie et Ochs, extreme thinness = power, because they wanted their collection to exude strength, like Jean-Paul Goude’s iconic editorial …

      Merci beaucoup for letting me know this very encouraging thought : daydreaming is key, no matter what ! I adore this wild swimsuit, and the jungle-esque vibe of the background ! A very powerful homage to another very talented JPG ! Have a marvelously dreamy weekend ! ❤
