Today I was bored at work, so I had time to prepare this article, though I didn’t write anything down…. So I only have the pictures. My friends, I present to you a couture collection by one of my favorite designers: Jean Paul Gaultier ! And it’s needless to say that I found it simply astonishing. And I must say I loved almost every outfit of this collection, though some please me way more than others ! But globally I think that it’s one of his best shows so far…
Anyway, enough talking, let me show you, and comment. For Jean Paul Gaultier there’s only one category: my favorites, (and you can check the rest here). Why only one category for Gaultier ? Because either you like it or hate it, there’s nothing that could have been done another way. Let’s go !
(Original interpretation of the suit, very feminine)
(Perfect assymetry, you gotta love the colors)
(Beautiful red, perfect shapes)
(I don’t know what they are but they remind me of coackroaches, you gotta love this ! So Jan Fabre !)
(Very beautiful interpretation of the coat !)
(Unexpected composition, yet it looks amazing !)
(Amazing black composition !)
(So originally revisited chiton !)
(This outfit’s harmony is striking !)
(Imperial chocolate, you gotta like it !)
(Perfectly organised eccentricity, flawless)
Now, you’d never expect to see a mash-up of a ballerina and a biker look, would you ? But Jean Paul Gaultier just did it, and the result is mesmerizing ! It’s so frantic !
If you tell me you’re not dying, you’d be lying.
(This is just killing !)
(Beautiful white swan, note the legendary cones !)
And if that’s not enough just check the magical black swan Mylene Farmer walked in:
I have to say that what’s really interesting about Jean Paul Gaultier’s collections is that each outfit is different, yet they all share the same spirit, that’s such a strength, it keeps you excited all along, you can’t get bored, and there’s always something that’ll please you !
But, nothing’s perfect, and even in Jean Paul Gaultier’s collection there are dresses I can’t stand, tell me if you disagree but these shouldn’t even exist…
(I hate this shiny fabric, it looks so cheap !)
(I hate the colors, (shiny) black, silver and blue ? That’s too much)
(What the fuck ?!)
I guess I don’t need to sum up. Even though there were three disappointing dresses, the whole collection is still incredible, and my love for Jean Paul Gaultier grew even more !
Oh fuck ! I almost forgot ! Have you noticed the heel less shoes ? Now that makes me just so happy to see these florish, people won’t look at me asking: ‘’These are shoes ? How do you even walk in them ?’’, anymore if they become popular. You gotta love them, here are the close-ups:
I can smell fashion icons grabing these…)
I hope you share my thoughts ! If not, I’m always open to any comments, suggestions, debates, etc.
Et sur ce, my friends, salut ! Et à bientôt !
