When the first model steps on to the runway and begins to dance a jig, you know it’s not going to be a typical show. But since when is Jean Paul Gaultier typical?
Feathered headresses and crocheted masks belied the fact that underneath the theatrics of it all, there were some beautiful, wearable clothes. The coats were especially gorgeous; trenches in every color from classic tan to oversize red tartan and buttery little leather jackets. There was plenty of fur, exotic skins, and glittering metallics to satisfy the diva in all of us as well. Despite the over-the-top glamour of the show (or perhaps because of it), it was the simplest pieces that worked the best.
