Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall 2010

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Haute Couture Fall show began with a trench - but not just an average, run-of-the-mill trench - this one was designed with batwing sleeves and a high, vampire-esque collar which was teamed with a huge sculptural head wrap which seemed to to go on forever - accentuating the long, petit frame of the model even further.

As per usual, Gaultier’s signature smouldering designs were mixed in with the array of fantastical characters which parade down the catwalk. The inspiration this time, was clearly a mix of old school Parisian chic - evident from the huge head wraps, the slinky clothes which veered on a burlesque theme, and those Audrey Hepburn cigarette holders which some of the models showed off seductively between their fingers.

The collection was unusual for Gaultier, who’s inspiration can come from anywhere between Mars and Tokyo - it was glamorous, French, yet still very Gaultier, as each element of the show provided a distinct marvel to revel in.
