~Nautical CHIC*

The term 'nautical chic' may have come & gone, but I simply adore
the sailor-esque-stripes especially for the summer look!
Anywayyy...
have you seen the ELLE Decoration Suite designed by Jean Paul Gaultier?
~Take a look :
.
" errr-errr...anyone getting a little DIZZY yet?! "
... French fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier unveiled his spectacular design for the former abode of Jacques Carlu, the architect of the Palais de Chaillot. Apparently, this apartment suite has amazing views over Paris and the famous Eiffel Tower. Gaultier's signature nautical stripes running throughout...very-very dizzying indeed! but ~très chic non? errr...just don't stay in that room for too long I guess, or one might get a terrible sea-sickness ~Ahoy!
~XOXO*

I love nautical, but this does make me a wee dizzy. Over the top for certain, but Gaultier's visions are known to be a little surreal, not "real life". Very cool.
