Jean Paul Gaultier - Paris Couture Fall 2008
(PARIS) It was a bit schizophrenic--but chez Gaultier, we wouldn't want it any other way. The 53 looks shown at a beautiful, stately maison on rue St. Martin were loosely united by a series of sculptural cages, beginning with one crafted atop a masterful short fur coat. They appeared later on in satin dutchess, placed upon ecstatic evening gowns forged of bright feather shades like mustard and hyacinth. Gaultier offers couture at its gutsiest, for fashion fiends more interested in looking interesting than anything else. As one of the week's latest shows, it reminded an increasingly restless front row why it's critical to pay attention. For that, especially--Bravo!
