Sometimes it seems that fashion and style exist just for the sole purpose of some people to grace us with their gift; in my book, Jean Paul Gaultier is one of those designers.
While Gaultier's Fall 2011 RTW (ready-to-wear) is just as praise-worthy as his Fall 2011 Couture collection, I want to share a few of my favorite designs from his haute couture show. I've chosen these for their design elements, originality, impact, and feel.
Unfortunately, due to time contraints, I can't review each ensemble below, of which each is clearly deserving. Note the ballet-inspired shoes, variety of color schemes and use of color, textures, symmetry, and asymmetry. Enjoy!
