Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2013

This show, which was very typical Jean Paul Gaultier, really made me want to know who his couture customers are. I know the majority of the buyers are from outside of continental Europe, but this collection makes me wonder whether his clients are all fifty something, tall, curvy French women who are ex-Helmut Newton models and wear skirt suits and stiletto pumps every single day (except when they are at the pool, then they wear one piece swimsuits, costume jewelry, and those same stiletto pumps.) Wouldn’t that just be amazing?

I love…

the way Gaultier can cut a mean coat.

a prim velvet dress.

that this looks totally weird yet still a bit classy.

I loathe…

an ugly mix of metallics accessorized with a fox on drugs.
