~ Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 RTW ~

3 Oct

A couture show like they used to do in the fifties. No music, just narration in French and English, and models carrying cards with their look numbers. Clothes were signature Gaultier: trenches done a million ways, and pinstripe suiting worn with crisp, asymmetrical white shirts on the one hand; and on the other, lingerie details and tattoo-print body stockings. The tattoo motif carried over into evening pieces with silk cord embroidered onto the nude tulle bodices of draped gowns, or down the arm of one-sleeved cocktail dresses.
