Jean Paul Gaultier Spring-Summer 2016 ‚Le Palace‘ collection

Jean Paul Gaultier unveiled his Spring/Summer 2016 haute couture collection during Paris Fashion Week.This was a good Jean Paul Gaultier  show and, as always, , Gaultier shows are not only a celebration of fashion but an ode to those who make fashion what it is,constantly reinvent the stuff of fashionworld dreams.Collection is full of clothes that many of us would enjoy wearing to go to night clubs. Pieces like a fully embroidered men’s smoking jacket sashed at the waist with a silk braid and tassels; a tuxedo made from white marabou feathers trimmed in black bugle beads worn with fishnets instead of pants; and a one-shoulder lace-edged cape covered in crystals. Though undoubtedly a lot of work went into these items, the overall attitude wasn’t precious. Quite the opposite: An oversize souvenir jacket was tossed casually over a sequined dress; another evening number was topped by a jean jacket; there were shorts. Bleached denim and silk that looked like bleached denim formed the basis of a handful of Looks.You got the feeling that Gaultier wasn’t taking things too seriously. Outliers such as a chartreuse robe layered under a blue beaded body-con dress could’ve sagely remained back in the atelier. Still, when he puts his mind to it, he can cut one hell of a suit. The frilled lapels on an otherwise crisp wool jacket took all the business out of its pinstripes. The fit on a black crepe sheath with orange lace spilling out of a slit in the back was pretty divine, too.
