Jean Paul Gaultier Menswear Autumn Winter 2011

Jean Paul Gaultier did some amazing things with tuxedos this season and his theme was very “James Bond wears a scuba diving outfit to sneak into a secret party, and then rips it off to reveal a tuxedo” (isn’t that True Lies? …but anyway.) The scuba theme was fun, but I would have liked to see less of the leggings and a few more trousers to go with those gorgeous jackets he designed. I must say that the somewhat positive and excited mood of this show makes me happy, as I fear for the Gaultier brand simply because he doesn’t have Hermès helping him out anymore. It would be a bloody travesty if he were to go under, although if he keeps doing shows like this, and selling tons of perfume, I think he will be ok.

I love…
