Pretty much without fail, I am impressed with Gaultier's clothing, always for differing reasons. And that may be one of the keys to his success - he's forever re-inventing and maturing his style. I love the excitement, the creativity, the themes.. it's so refreshing and inspiring to view as a designer. The tailoring here is truly divine.
Holy smokes what I wouldn't do to intern/apprentice with him.

But who knows--maybe it's nothing more than two different designers sharing a similar approach to design.
i dunno i guess to a degree i can see a margiela spirit here but if you go back and look at a lot of JPG's earlier work he wasn't without a lot of these elements himself. even though margiela was much more concept oriented and less about fashion,he and JPG did share a lot in common in terms of construction and humour.
