Gaultier’s sketches juxtaposed against the footage from The Fifth Element

A popular video blogger Candice Drouet has published a video in which the footage from Luc Besson’s film The Fifth Element is juxtaposed against the costumes designed by a French fashion guru Jean Paul Gaultier specifically for this blockbuster.

The flamboyant outfits, which only add to the futuristic appearance of the main characters of Luc Besson’s space epic, were designed to look both stylish and provocative. Soon after the film premier, these costumes were deemed “iconic” and became a source of inspiration for many other designers.

Earlier Candice Drouet posted a video compiling footage from various films, in which their characters wear sneakers.
