Jean Paul Gaultier

Spring 10

The look
With a graphic and unfussy opening, Jean Paul Gaultier served up a show at variance with his usual dramatics. A 1960s vibe used on clean sb tailoring in putty tones contrasted with navy and fiery orange. The graphic look was underscored with taped seams on round collared suits and oversized trench jackets. Wider db jackets came through, used with multi-stripe shirts which took Gaultier’s nautical stripes and placed them in more graphic terms.  Denim shirts and jackets took the show in a more casual direction.

Key pieces
The wider-cut db tailoring offered a strong shouldered silhouette, while ombre shirts and striped nylon jackets served up graphical looks that were underlined by the 1960s clean lined tailoring.

For more spring 10 menswear trends see the forthcoming issue of Drapers (June 27), which will feature a full report from Florence menswear show Pitti Uomo. Drapers (July 4) will feature an in-depth guide to the men’s catwalks.
