Thanks MagFan for posting this great show. Shame that Fashion had to cut them up instead of posting the entire show uninterrupted. The late 90s was phenomenal, and Gaultier's contributions during that time was no exception. The man is one of the last true design visionaries left in the fashion world, and he's so under-appreciated for his trailblazing fashions. This particular show was incredibly rich and influential-- and original, not just in terms of what we would see the following year for his Haute Couture debut, but the mix of draping with volume would be a blueprint for other designers in the 2000s on to follow. I'm hoping Gaultier will look at his work during that time and return to that kind of quality. Not that his current work isn't good, but I can definitely take less of the corsets and bustiers which are verging on caricatures and more of his daft tailoring and draping. And his dramatic set designs are sorely missed nowadays.

And look at all the top girls from that era-- they had wicked presence; my God, girls today are like bland watercolors compared to these rich oil paintings who demanded your attention. I love it when Patricia picks up an orange and starts peeling it! And whatever happened to Yasmeen and Crystal?

Thanks Melancholy for the magazine pics.

Gaultier's HC from a decade ago was magical. His current HC offering is like the exact opposite of that to me. I guess retro- kitsch and camp is what his clientele wants from him...
