The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier: From The Sidewalk To The Catwalk Is Now In San Francisco!

The much anticipated “The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” will begin on Saturday, March 24th thru August 19th at the deYoung Museum as the famous designer will be attending at the sold-out premiere event! Such a sight to even be in the presence of such a renowned fashion designer of our time walking the streets of San Francisco. I’m definitely making a trip to the museum to see his collection!

With spot gold trading around $1,660 per ounce, that means you’re paying a 10% premium for the  Gaultier brand. It makes for a great pendant I guess, but this a bit ridiculous don’t you think? What do you guys think about branding gold bars? Gold is gold to me, but you’re paying more for these…
