If you watch the show (which I enjoyed immensely, side note) amongst the Ziggy Stardust tack there are some great things; that gorgeous little acid yellow silk blouse-dress worn open on one of the Boy George looks; that amazing kimono sleeve trench with semi-sheer panels in the shoulders followed by the same idea in a suit.
The worst bits (we're not including the obvious choices..) were the horrible knitted things.. though I never like anything like that.
Look past the gimmicks!

Gaultier is one of the last few remaining visionaries left in fashion, and he's created such a rich and generous fashion vocabulary in his reign that's become unmistakably his alone. And just as he was refining this vocabulary in the late 90s and into the 2000s, I see that sleek and polished vocab of his is gradually slipping back to the camp and kitsch-speak of the 80s-- unfortunately.

It's a fun collection and if this were a concept for an editorial, it would be awesome and energizing. But as a collection-- especially a Gaultier collection, this is Gaultier on autopilot. Frankly, I wonder if he's involved with it much-- it looks a tad suspiciously like the works of assistant-designers just following the Gaultier blueprint. There's nothing new here and the styling is too campy and regressive for a mature Gaultier 2013-- men in tights and heels are so boring and Gaultier should be way beyond this by now. The references and styling are frightening DSquared-level shallow. The tuxedo-suitings that opened the show is the only saving grace and remain as sharp as ever, and that's a great relief, but everything else just looks as if he pulled some old pieces from previous collections and called it a day.

You guys should get over the styling (wich was really fun, to be honest). The clothes are fantastic, those flower print silk pants were great, for example. I just love how non-pretencious Jean Paul is.

Best collection for me now. This is so fun. I LOVE IT.
As a child of the 80s this is just fashion heaven for me.

This show is perfect! nothing can overcome it. Gaultier is more than a designer.

Actually he is doing fine, he is not the same than the rest, and I love that. Just see the boring collections of Givenchy, Dior, Margiela, for example, they only make clothing and they're similar at least in this season. Gaultier is performing art as the fashion has to be. He isn't designing for fashion victims, kudos for him.

The show looked fun, but as far as the clothes go, it was a disaster for me.
