Last week I got the chance to go with my class to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in order to visit the exposition on Jean-Paul Goude’s work.

I have to be honest with you, I didn’t know him… but once there I realized I already knew and loved so much of his work! Plus, it was funny to actually realize that so many things that I thought were so apart from each other, actually came from the same artist.

Turns out he is the one who gave Grace Jones her iconic image; he is the one who’s made all ad campaigns of Galeries Lafayette; he made the famous Chanel’s Egoïste commercial; he even photographed Tavi Gevinson for L’Officiel… he’s done all!

The pictures are not of the best quality but hopefully they’ll give you an idea on the spirit of this not-so-traditional artist :)

All photos by me. All the art portrayed is of intellectual property of Jean-Paul Goude.
