Gaultier’s affection for the female form was truly indulged in this parade of form-revealing creations including gauzy, sheer skirts and dresses and styles featuring exposed seams to map out the body. The tuxedo also was a consistent theme. Strong shouldered jackets with extended satin lapels marked a nod to the 1980s and the strict black and white palette was only interrupted for a few pops of neon yellow and russet.
Sharp jackets were a key component of the collection, whether peak lapelled and double breasted, with swooping asymmetric portrait collars or cropped above high-waist matador pants, the shoulder was always sharp, strong and important. A jumpsuit was crafted out of an extended tuxedo jacket and a giant fan dress illustrated Gaultier’s fantastical imagination.
