Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 Burgundy Sheath Dress with Lace Appliqué

Spring and Fall seasons of 2007 were for sure the once when Jean Paul Gaultier wanted his audience to enjoy classical paintings more than usual. Constantly inspired by art, Gaultier often used works by famous artists in his collections. For Spring 2007 couture he was also inspired by the vernacular devotional art found in local churches throughout the Catholic world. Sophisticated embroidery on lace depicting various classical paintings - a technique first used in the couture collection - was then used in the Fall 2007 Ready-to-Wear. The same images were applied on the pieces that were more wearable, but no less unique.
This Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2007 burgundy sheath dress has a lace panel on the back with the stunning embroidery of a painting by a French artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau called Le Jour (Day)(1884). A flattering hourglass silhouette, two slip pockets, a hidden zipper, a boned bodice and a shining beauty of the embroidery make this dress a piece of art in itself.
