Jean Paul Gaultier Fall Winter 2013-14 Haute Couture
Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashions are always unique and this collection has Catittude. He toyed with animal prints in such playful ways. Aside from the use of some real fur, (which I am vehemently against) Jean Paul used remarkable ingenuity to incorporate the luxury of an animal print without actually using an animal! Leopard prints take on new meaning on a shimmering silk, as patterns on stockings and even as designs in hair. Separates masquerade as real fur but are made with alternative elements like chicken feathers! Now that’s creative!
Pleats and textures are accordion styled, rolled and form curvaceous patterns. Shapes are figure flattering and occasionally Sci-Fi. Swarovski crystals light styles up as do fascinating elements of jewelry that are integral elements of some of the designs. The collection is super stylish, sometimes practical but more often extravagant, and lots of fun.
