There are only three designers whose couture work I really admire – Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Jean Paul Gaultier. Two of them no longer create due to the reasons you know, but one still keeps making those fantastic outfits that often leave us breathless. Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection was wonderful. Inspired by and dedicated to Amy Winehouse it consisted of pieces which were feminine and colorful in Amy’s style and extravagant and chic in Gaultier’s way.
Models with beehives, beauty spots on their faces and dramatic eye makeup walked down the runway in dresses of the fifties era, tiny corsets and bodysuits, glitzy pencil skirts and simple shirts, stylish suits and sheer tunics.
PVC leggings, blazers which exposed bras and a lot of flesh, and dresses baring backs were showcased along with demure frocks, well-tailored coats and high-waisted pants in Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s accessories were amazing. Luxurious veils adorned with embroidery, fringe and lace, wide cuffs in a variety of styles, headwear with huge flowers decorating it, exquisite earrings and cute necklaces, foldover and clutch bags – all made Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection even more complete.
