Jean Paul Gaultier • Autumn/Winter 2015-16 Couture • Vogue UK


JEAN PAUL GAULTIER bowed out of the ready-to-wear domain in 2014 to focus on couture, his efforts today an homage to the Breton he has so made his own during his fashion career. It was an ode to his sartorial signature: its stripes morphing from the traditional sailor-style top to jumpsuits and tights, to inflated circular skirts and as trimmings and accents here and there. It was the most Gaultier of Gaultier statements – something which the couture world enables a designer to do and which he was clearly embracing.

When it wasn’t a jaunty high-sea affair, it was as though he had sent his models off to the bazaars of Istanbul for patchwork rug dresses, jackets, skirts and trousers with thickly embroidered yellow yokes on velvet jackets.

Gaultier captivated his fans at the Vogue Festival back in April with his wit and charm, something which always manages to filter through his fashion – even if some of the pieces might be a little more complicated to win some people over with.
