Gaultier Paris Spring 2015

by David Pedroza, Editor in Chief

There is no show, like a Gaultier show! Seeing a Gaultier haute couture show is like seeing a  spectaular avant-garde cabaret. For spring 2015 Gaultier sent out ladies in feminine-masculine hybrids and two-for one looks, in a collection he named,  61 Fa├žons de Se Dire Oui, or 61 Ways to Say Yes. Each look was infussed with classic Gaultier DNA, along with his ateliers savior-faire of exquisite tailoring and dressmaking. Some people forget or do not know Jean Paul Gaultier worked for Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint Laurent, which has made him an expert for precise cutting and tailoring.

My appointment, state-side, which is reserved for clients who can do not attend the show, has proven that the house of Gaultier makes wearable, yet exciting clothes any women can wear. This past year, the house has left behind its ready-to-wear production, to concentrate on its haute couture and purfume buisness. A smart move, especially for a house who has good profits in haute couture. I was told by the Directrice, that many regular clients come to Jean Paul Gaultier for day day wear with an edge. In keeping my loyalty and promise to keep information secret, I can not divulge in many details, but lets just say Gaultier suits and day dresses are a must for any clients, every day wardrobe.


Look 18: beautiful jacket worn back backwards, with a lovely day dress, which I viewed at my appointment (right) in wool crepe, perfect for everyday wear.

Exit 23: One of my favorite looks, perfect party dress with silk taffeta and crepe.
Exit 45: Perfect sheath in silk satin.

Exit 12: Pieces like these are not appreciated on the runway, this suit for example
is embroidered with thousands of thread knots.
