Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 – *Gaultier goes Breton*

Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture A/W 2015 -2016 Collection inspired  by Breton.
Bagpipe music, dark lighting, and sailor inspired looks all debuted at the new Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 2015 couture collection in homage to Bretagne, a region in France still full of tradition.
Stunning art forms with intricate details from top to bottom with huge ball gowns, Anna Cleveland debuted the final wedding gown and it certainly deserved around of applause. Gaultier and Cleveland danced down the runway hand and hand to the song „In The Navy“ by Village People.
The Breton stripe, as worn by sailors, has become synonymous with Jean Paul Gaultier over the years.
So Wednesday’s fall-winter couture collection – inspired by the French region of Brittany – seemed like a wholly natural place for the French designer.
The results were more theatre than couture. But the exuberant couturier produced a highly infectious presentation, replete with an entire traditional Breton orchestra performing bagpipes on the runway, crepe-makers handing out delights and one model marching theatrically down in a giant patchwork couture explosion with a tube wig that had one guest weeping with laughter.
The collection saw lashings of Breton stripes, in blue and white tights, sheer black velvet blouses – and traditional lace Breton tube hats in exaggerated heights.
The Celtic Circle defined many of the silhouettes – appearing as giant circle skirts often embroidered in traditional patterns – and one gold show-stopper with black feather fringing.
Stunning art forms with intricate details from top to bottom with huge ball gowns, Anna Cleveland debuted the final wedding gown and it certainly deserved around of applause. Gaultier and Cleveland danced down the runway hand and hand to the song „In The Navy“ by Village People.

Catherine Deneuve applauded enthusiastically from the front row alongside American actress Michelle Rodriguez.
„I’ve loved Gaultier since I was in my twenties,“ Rodriguez told The Associated Press. „He’s just got always that edge, you know? He’s like an artist and he’s never scared.“
