After all the sweetness and sobriety of the last two runway shows, I thought I should wake you up with some scandalous, genuine Jean Paul Gaultier! The FW collection was a bit all over the place unfortunately, showcasing not one but seemingly all of the designer's cult pieces in just one show - such as the corset cage dresses, the kimonos and kaftans or the fancy suits and top hats for menswear. Although it seemed a bit non-cohesive, the collection was designed under a central theme, the movie "Confessions of a Child of the Century", that the designer saw while he was in the jury for the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.
Among the multitude of overworked looks, there were still some great pieces in the collection that I really enjoyed watching , such as the dress in the opening photo with a very interesting shoulder detail or the sheer black sparkly dress worn by Karlie Kloss. Here are the most interesting looks from the runway, including a few menswear looks here and there:
What do you think of the overall collection? Over the top an all over the place, but it still has its good pieces in my opinion.
