Well, it's true that some of the gowns don't look perfect, but in a sea of boring and mundane collections, this stands out because it brings much needed excitement to the couture week.

Best JPG Ive seen in ages ... and I do want to know all the details about why the show was SO late ...

Im so glad to see him get his stride back ... there is so much to pick from. I know the black pieces dont scream couture .. but I love em! (and I dont like black)

The Madonna-ish bodysuit corset thing was the eyesore for me, did not belong in this collection at all...

This is the first Gaultier couture collection I've liked in a very, very long time. Almost all of the opening looks are fabulous, so much more chic than the kitschy crap he's been pushing heavily for years and very reminiscent of the work that made me fall for Gaultier to begin with. The only true weak spot for me are the gowns, which for the most part are ugly and silly.

Such a great show and behind all the theatrics and drama there are some amazing pieces. The black looks at the beginning are superb, very strong indeed.
Loving the black flared trouser suit.
As the show progressed it seemed to be more in the style of JPG's couture shows, but still, some of the outfits were beautifully constructed.
Also need to add that the casting was outstanding.....some brilliant models who really understand how to showcase his outfits.
Highlight of the week.

to me this collection looks way more couture than dior. i find dior collection to be so minimalistic as a couture collection. the shape, the architecture of clothing, details dont seem to required as much time to execute compare to jpg.

my other point is that, elie sabb and dior lack of creative and groundbreaking elements. sure many pieces from those collection, especially those from elie sabb, look stunningly gorgeous but then again they are not much different from what we have seen in the past.

to me raf's first collection for the house of dior is a big fail. what he did was mixing elements from jil sander and dior together to come up with the collection instead of bringing new ideas and elements into the collection.
