Jean Paul Gaultier is one of the most talented designers in the industry. Yes, some people don’t understand his aesthetics and believe his designs are just a waste of money and time because they are often highly unpractical. But no one can deny he is genius and what he does nobody else can do.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2012 Haute Couture collection is dark but it is also chic and very unusual. There is a little cabaret, pin up, baroque and mysticism. Models strut the runway in luxurious floor-length gowns made of unique shining fabrics, dyed fur coats, super high-waisted pants teamed with cropped corsets, sheer jumpsuits and dresses with elaborate embroidery as well as frocks with colored fringe.
Accessory line is even more interesting. There are top hats in a variety of tones, gloves which reach models’ elbows, suede belts and metallic necklaces in shape of a collar, and hair pieces which come with nets that cover the head. Shoes also surprised. Coming with huge platforms they either featured knee-length criss-cross detail or the one that barely touched the ankles. See the entire collection below:
