Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring Summer 2012

I know Jean Paul Gaultier likes to play with “interesting” themes in his catwalk shows, but I was not impressed with the Amy Winehouse story going on in this show. Thankfully it wasn’t the only thing happening in this collection, which was mostly a pleasure to look at. Of course there was the usual pinstriped tailored, corsets, and conic bras, but the evening wear was stunning and featured a lot of new ideas. But let’s forget about the lingerie, which looked rather silly and/or trashy instead of beautifully luxurious. I guess that’s what the Winehouse does to a show.

I love…

when you can't figure out what the hell is going on, but don't really care 'cause it looks fab.

an outfit that a weird raver, or "cyber punk" would wear.

too much weird, trashy looking lingerie.
