Jean Paul Gaultier balances futuristic military and traditional feminine glamour in his autumn/winter namesake collection.
sophistication to the collection.
Sequential block patterns invaded form-fitting dresses, studded leather jackets trespassed on whimsical sheer skirts, brass metallic golds and silvers usurped sleek feminine suits, and a floor-length deep purple sheer gown accepted the rule of jagged, linear black piping. It would seem in the land of Gaultier, juxtaposing futuristic, military Amazonian women with the glamorous, but traditional, femme fatale isn’t just rule of law – it’s plain common sense.
