Jean Paul Gaultier is a showman, and his Spring 2014 collection was certainly a sight to see. Brimming with flirty flair, prints, and models who looked as if they were actually having fun, the runway certainly came alive with each look that artfully and energetically glided down.
Right out the gate, Gaultier presented the bad girl, with loads of black leather, crop tops, zipper detailing, and mesh. The tough edge was given a feminine spin with ruffled hems and tulle.
Blush pink reared its head on ankle-strap pumps, a mesh panel jacket that channeled Dior’s New Look, leather shorts, and a quirky graphic tee with a flapper whose neck was wrapped in snakes.
Then white burst through in the collection, adding a sense of freshness and purity on a moto-inspired jumpsuit, on-trend skort, a transparent bomber jacket, and strappy, sky-high platform sandals.
Prints ranged from cartoonish patterns to Spring-perfect florals.
Fringe accented some of the collection’s raciest looks, unabashedly baring skin. The Hollywood starlets who choose these designs will need to be confident, fearless, and most of all physically fit. These were also perfect illustrations of tour costumes: perhaps the brand will link up with some high-fashion loving songstress in the coming months.
