Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Ever since we learnt the sad news about the closure of Jean Paul Gaultier’s women’s and men’s ready to wear lines after more than 38 years spent in the industry (don’t worry, the designer will keep on working on his couture collections), we were sure the last show of the talented French designer was to be something super-vibrant and memorable. And yes, we were not mistaken! The Jean Paul Gaultier spring/summer 2015 collection has just hit the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week, charming everyone present with all its extravaganza, unexpected style solutions and unique performance, which put a memorable end to this page of the luxury French fashion house’s history. It was an entire spectacle, where the models were the actresses showing the history of the brand on the stage and the evolvement of the Gaultier rtw fashion (the catwalk was turned into a theatre stage, announcing the start of a promising performance).

As expected, the Gaultier had looked to the brand’s heritage, coming up with en extensive collection that brought multiple styles and his most signature shapes and design elements to the scene. Surely, we witnessed some unconventional models on the stage too, which has already become a tradition for the French designer. Still, it was the unique conglomeration of colors, patterns, cuts, shapes and small curious details that mattered a lot, making the Jean Paul Gaultier spring/summer 2015 collection one of the most bizarre and eccentric lines for the coming spring, as well as one of the most spectacular rtw collections unveiled by the designer so far.
On the whole, the show was divided into several sections, each of which was concentrating on a particular style and particular Gaultier classics. Every stage of the show managed to convey Gaultier’s mastery of tailoring and unique fantasy. Thus, the show kicked off with the twenties gangster mood, when the models walked down the runway wearing iconic pinstripe suits in black and white, featuring flirty short shorts, knee-length options and various forms of tailored pants. There we saw altered forms of tuxedo jackets, one of which was used as a classic dress. The looks at this part of the show were complemented with black and white slightly oversized fedora hats, leather gloves and classic heels. You couldn’t see any other shade than black and white here, maybe except for the red lipstick of the models.
The appearance of the full-figure model wearing a sexy bodysuit announced about the change of the theme and mood. The heavily printed and colored sporty style came to reign for a while, showing lots of designs made of printed silk and shimmery fabrics. There we saw lots of yellow, blue, red, as well as stripes and “Logo” prints used on unconventional designs. The models’ makeup was also brighter here, featuring strong blue smokey eyes and red lips, while the hair was styled into cornrows. As for the accessories, we saw backpacks, leather gloves and knee-high colorful socks worn with platform heels.

During the show, we also saw the rock chic Gaultier woman, who wore cool leather biker jackets, lace-up pants and feminine full skirts, all put in the iconic black shade. Next, the mood got more cheerful, as the colorful disco style came to stun with all those super-short shorts, shimmery pieces and heavily printed looks.
Suddenly the show turned into a beauty contest, where the winners were bold and stylish women over sixty, accompanied by young and fit men. After a pause of an array of toned down looks coming only in the shade of black and concentrating on masculine vibes with tuxedo being the protagonist, we saw the most extravagant and quirky colorful looks finished off with awe-inspiring masks that closed the show.
We always expect the erratic, the cool and the audacious from Madonna’s pointy bra designer, yet the Jean Paul Gaultier spring/summer 2015 collection still managed to surprise us and to show the unexpected. As the designer had noted before the show, it did become the show of the decade!
