Jean Paul Gaultier - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) Those who complained about being committed to a fashion show on a Saturday night certainly pulled back their moans after witnessing the Gaultier show. He gave his supporters their money's worth with a show full of experiences that played out like a fashion melodrama. The spectacle encompassed everything from protestors to mud wrestling to cash kissing on the runway to parades with roses. It all ended in a thunderous applause, of course, and not just because Gaultier followers came to see a variety show; the actual collection was one of the designer's strongest modern efforts. His inspiration was certainly very centered: Gaultier placed a selection of photos backstage that encompassed some kinky bondage references. But the chiffon standouts, asymmetrical trenches, and a fair selection of furs all stood out on their own. The leatherwork was Gaultier at his best, and his mid-length black dresses looked rich and dangerous.
