I really, really did not like this at all. An uninspired rehash of everything he's already done. Boring, scatterbrained, assault on the eyes.

I'm surprised at the route Gaultier has taken his HC collections as of late. Well, disappointed, actually. When he started his HC back in the late-90s, he blew me away at how refined, classic, luxurious and restrained, BUT also dramatic, unconventional and innovative it all was, without ever losing that Gaultier sense of humor and whimsy. He single-handed brought back the bygone days of HC when it was genuinely magical and so exclusive, and FRENCH with not only the designs, but the presentations. I suppose now that everyone's caught up to him, his reaction seems to be quite bewildering to me-- he's resorted back to gaudy and gimmicky designs for his HC collections.

This HC started out well enough, with all those variations on Le Smoking-- but then the men's stuff, in typical velvet-mafia shimmering transparent and patents, just adds such a gaudy taste to the refinement. (I know the older and fabulous gentleman that's been Gaultier's muse since the beginning is a tradition at his shows, but I think it's time he retires. His trademark walk was fabulous in the past, but to see an older gentleman still walking like he thinks he's Naomi, is quite... awkward.) And by the time those dresses with "GAULTIER PARIS" emblazoned all through the design shows up like underwear bands, I'm over the intoxication of the first looks and back to being bored by all the cheapness-- a word I wouldn't normally use to identify Gaultier.

I so want Gaultier to be great, because, after all this time, he's still brimming with ideas and so many have taken from him of his past collections.

I guess he's only designing what his clientele wants?

For the black daywear looks in the beginning, I wish he'd move on from the straight-leg cut on the trousers. But he does it well (well, he should: he's been using that same cut for years now), so I won't hold that against him.

I wish we had better shots of that gold coat on Karlie. That definitely looks like a great feat in couture pattern-making, worthy enough to be on display at a museum..from what little I see.
