I want to like it, and i do, but there's only like 3 looks that are actually wearable, and even if it's HC and you can do a lot of crazy things around HC, I don't see anybody actually wearing any of this..

Absolutely love this collection. Gaultier definitely delivered something magnificent.

On a side note, I think people interchange the terms "couture" and "avant garde", which is where the disconnect comes in to play. They go together, but can also be totally independent of each other.

I love that this collection is unapologetic and unafraid but also full of purpose.

But if you look at the individual pieces, there's actually quite a lot of wearable clothing. Suits, pants, gowns, coats, etc. I think the styling definitely makes it all look a little more extreme. Also, some couture clients ask to have pieces altered.

100% agree. Therein lies the entire debate.

I'm not a fan of most of the clothes, yet I love the feeling, the presentation, the mood, etc.

Oh my god, this collection. I absolutely ADORE this collection. Look 21 is one of my favorite looks, if I could I would snatch that jacket up in a heartbeat. I'm in love with this. I find Gaultier has always been the enfant terrible of Parisian Haute Couture. He himself is wacky and fun, and his clothes are very sophisticated while being completely outrageous. This is one of my favorite collections of Couture week, which was my favorite couture week in a long time.

I found this article about the inspiration of JPG to this collection!
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...star-show.html

This has been one of my favourites collections this season, and now I love it even more because JPG used Pete Doherty as inspiration
