A have two opinions on this collection. The first half is incredible, a sort of ‘Katherine Hepburn eat your heart out’ retro feel. Gaultier has really gone to town with 1940’s inspired elegance. The vintage inspired garments have pushed the past right into the future. My personal favourite is the leopard detail bouncing throughout, bold blacks with leopard fur detail, It creates a very expensive image. The silhouettes are angular yet feminine, bold and creative, yet very classic. The fabrics used are leathers, wools and furs and work well with the shapes created. Power dressing at its finest.
However the collection moves onto a clown-like, futuristic feel, with bolder colours, which aren’t in my taste. At all.
