Good Lord, Jean Paul Gaultier Takes Mexican Fashion Cue from Mel Gibson

Parisian haut couture has never been this fun.

Mixing images of mariachi hats, agave plants, palm trees and vaquero pants, Parisian designer Jean Paul Gaultier this week introduced the world to his spring-summer 2010 collection, totally inspired in the “sounds and sights” of Mexico.

Asked when he’s last visited Mexico, Gaultier told the press it was well over 30 years ago, but that it was Mel Gibson’s 2006 Mayan epic Apocalypto what put him into a tropical state of mind.

Oh, now I get it!
