Theatralic as always
And gorgeous as always.
This dress was already perfect 18 years ago and doesn't need any alterations
It says alot about the current fashion climate when JPG remains as one of the best regarding tailoring even when using similar "difficult" fabrics to those of the Dior collection.
His attention to detail and the impeccable tailoring is what keeps me coming back to his work. There isn't a thread out of place. Even when having models moving way more than the funeral that is Dior.
I love Gaultier but menswear aside, I really think that this is one of his worst Couture collection, if not the worst.
The quality is still great but there are some very strange designs, the same easy gimmicks and the always very unimaginative and kinda dated presentation.
We only have 2 Gaultier shows/ year and the disappointment is even bigger because of that. The ruffled dresses needs to be at an Alexis Mabille show, not JPG!
He misses Ready to wear
I was sad when he retired from RTW and told myself that he would do great couture pieces given he would have more time to work on them, only 2 collections a year but it doesn't seem to be the case. Something is missing, I just expect more out of JPG. Impeccable tailoring as always though and I'm liking the hair details.
When Gaultier goes monochromatic, classic Le Smoking, no one can touch him with that daft tailoring, fit, and impossibly austere graphic design sensibility.
It’s just too bad that even with HC, he is clearly designing only for his clientele’s wants— with absolutely no extra efforts beyond that requirement.
(The menswear is hugely disappointing-- except for that impeccably draped sari-tux... Tuxes with cheap patented, platform sneakers is what I’d expect from the lowest of the low Philipp Plein, not Gaultier.)
In a weird, fantastic way I kind of like it... I like how many men are thrown into the mix and some outfits are really interesting
I think this is one of his better collections in recent times. No gaudy color schemes..no silly prints..nothing too, too kitschy/campy/cartoonish..and no silly pop-culture references. A few pieces seem out of place here, but no big whoop. I do wish he'd step out of his comfort zone (this really is standard Gaultier), but I'd rather see him stick to what he does best, than try something totally different and eff it up.
I think whatsisface @ Schiap can learn a few lessons here. That guy can take these same fabrics and, somehow, make it look heavy, but in Gaultier's hands, it's nothing short of magic.
wonderful, i absolutely love every collection the last couple of years now. the show is 30 minutes long but i watch every single second, the music was fab too.
I like this but I can't find anything that makes me say wow like I usually react whenever I see one of his collections Something is missing.
