Jean Paul Gaultier is known for his humorous and energetic style when it comes to his pieces being displayed on the runway, and this collection was no different. The mixing of patterns and the combination of tailored silhouettes creates a runway show that is enjoyable to watch, and intriguing to decipher.
Throughout the show the models displayed looks that either had sharp-edged shoulder pads that are reminiscent of the early 40s, or dresses that were long, flowy, and showed a lot of bare skin. These elements all speak true to the type of designer Gaultier is.
The use of lace, florals, and cropped pleated pants helps showcase different aspects of Gaultier’s creativity. The freshness of the show can be attributed to the use of colors like orange, green, and yellow. These colors help create an image of vegetation, and when that is combined with floral prints the image becomes that much clearer.
The Breton stripe also makes an appearance in the show, which further drives home the point that Jean Paul Gaultier is a man who will stay true to what he knows. This collection is different from previous collections that Gaultier has designed, but at the same time remain true to the overarching themes he has created for his line
