Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall Winter 2021-2022. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
As far as Haute Couture goes…. goes… goes… and gone, the new collaboration between Jean Paul Gaultier and Japanese designer Sacai’s Chitose Abe didn’t’ bring expected results. She is probably an admire of designs of Jean Paul Gaultier, but definitely not a designer who’s inspired by them. And of course she has no notion or understanding what Haute Couture means. Japanese style and Ready-to-Wear that’s what we got to see today at Jean Paul Gaultier show. No matter how patient Jean Paul Gaultier was, and how hard he tried to do the school thing – nothing, nada, zilch. Even couple of pieces and hats from previous Gaultier collections didn’t help.
Huffed and Puffed jackets and coats, grunged down denim dresses – that’s all about it. The message was used throughout the collection: Enfants Terribles. The Belle Epoque of Haute Couture is definitely gone from Jean Paul Gaultier fashion house.
