Jean Paul Gaultier Menswear Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2013
Leave it up to Jean Paul to come up with a surprising show idea every season. After his Michael Jackson, Grace Jones, Boy George-styled womenswear show of last season he, this time, entertained us with a strip show. Dressed in the many Gaultier classics his models stripped down to their grey colored long johns and leather boots. We saw forties influences and seventies style details given a subtle modern touch. Pinstriped suits, overalls with power shoulders, turtlenecks worn underneath fully buttoned shirts, a red pleated skirt and a camel colored jacket with studded arms were among the most outstanding pieces. Lots of recognizable pieces JPG has previously worked on. We can’t wait till the opening of his Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk exposition in the Netherlands next month. So we can take a close look at what may have been the foundation of this collection.
