 Seeing Jean-Paul Lespagnard‘s work was so inspiring to me as a designer; he had jackets that turned into dresses, pockets created out of folds in the fabric, unexpected seams that curved around the body (eg – the neckline in picture 4) and just to get technical; arm holes that started out as raglan sleeves and ended up as kimono – blew my mind. Jean-Paul really pushes himself as a designer to create something bold and new, he recently won over the heart of Susie Menkes who was impressed with the originality of his work. Mixing sport with luxury, Jean-Paul’s SS12 is inspired by 20’s/30’s flappers and american basketball, not an easy combination, but I think the outcome is something really innovative.
