Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2011/12

Jean Paul Gaultier continued to ring the changes on the iconic pieces that he loves. Trench coats were reenvisioned in liquid jersey, draped like the magnificent Madame Gres dresses currently on display at the Musée Bourdelle, and his biker jackets were transformed into masterpieces of elegantly tailored sobriety.

The hypnotic instructions of a ballet mistress and a ballett master to their classes, and the demand of the demonic choreographer in Black Swan to his hapless ballerina to embody thze qualities of both the Black Swan and the White Swan, at the Opening of Jean Paul Gaultier's show, signaled the designer's intention to explore a dark side of the fairy-tale world of tutus and feathered headdresses.

The jacket of his opening number - cut like a trench over a suave pantsuit - was given an explosion of tutu ruffles to createa bustled peplum, and romantic ballet-length skirts in sturdy tweeds had the unexpected embellishment of feathers at the at the hem that evoked the headdresses of ballet's traditional swans. Gaultier used feathers with the great imagination throughout the collections - tufts of multicolored marabou simulating camouflage prints or an Icelandic sweater; a feathered cockerel embellishing the sleeve of a black evening coat; and the bands of iridescent pheasant plumes streaking a full tulle skirt - with a bodice elaborately embroidered to simulate those feathers.

Beautiful Editorial Andrea. Indeed, a fairy-tale like couture. I esp love the fur trims. My fave is the fur tiered elaborate gown with a full skirt. Your pictures depict the iconic fashion moments so well of the designs...Regards, Shagun

Ray Banの豆知識、教えてください!金属がすぐに黒くなるので、何がフレームをキレイに保てる方法ないですか?先月にレイバン RB3025を購入したが、うっかりして水に落としてしまって、微妙にサビってしまた。レイバン aviatorの他のモデルもう一個買うしかないか。
