JEAN PAUL GAULTIER | HAUTE COUTURE FW 2012/13

“It was risqué without being burlesque”

POINTS were deducted from Jean Paul Gaultier for his couture show this season because it ran a whole hour and a half late. Even huge projections of Karlie Kloss on the walls of 325 rue Saint-Martin couldn’t keep the fashion pack occupied for that amount of extra minutes. So it was lucky that the house was tweeting away and giving us snap shots of models Andrej Pejic and Willy Cartier pre-show to whet our appetite.

When things finally did get going, they really got going. If you’re looking for a show with drama on the catwalk, then you should look to Jean Paul Gaultier. It’s not always about a new designer at an established house, it’s about an established designer at his own house dancing to his own sartorial tune. Gaultier had also tapped into the Art Deco side of things with furry jackets and beaded flapper dresses alongside Cabaret-style top hats and tails.
