JEAN PAUL GAULTIER

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - COUTURE REPORT -

Wed­dings were the theme of the col­lec­tion that Jean Paul Gaultier named ‘ Ways to Say Yes’. Known for his abil­ity to bring to­gether strong mas­cu­line and fem­i­nine el­e­ments in his work, Jean Paul Gaultier paired these per­fectly in a show that saw ev­ery­thing from day-to-day denim to soft tulle, tai­lored trousers, light­weight chif­fon and hints of the iconic Madonna cone bra of the s. Each look took on these con­trast­ing el­e­ments with clever names – a black out t, tai­lored like a man’s suit on one side and draped like a dress on the other was called ‘To Bi or Not To Bi’. And tak­ing the theme right through to the clos­ing mo­ments of the show, Naomi Camp­bell was the bridal bou­quet show­stop­per – tak­ing to the run­way in cel­lo­phane and live or­chids.
