Jean Paul Gaultier SS2015 Couture
Jean Paul Gaultier Spring/Summer 2015 Couture – Illustration
Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring/summer 2015 couure collection primarily celebrated duality with asymmetrical garments. It was about how asymmetry was executed. Jean Paul Gaultier unified halves of two different silhouettes to churn out contrasting hybrids. A little black dress featured tailored suit in one half and flowy dress in the other. Red-white dress had streamlined silhouette in one half and voluminous gathers emerging from a pinched waistline in the other. Layered tulle emerged from the foreshortened hem of a trench coat. Black dresses exposed boning and crinoline cages in one half. The hybrid was unusual and striking with JPG’s signature techniques.
The wedding themed show had plenty of full length white dress. The tulle ensemble featuring denim waistband is among my favourite pieces from SS15 couture collections. Snakeskin in bold red made an appearance in trench coat. Naomi Campbell concluded the show for JPG, draped in green cellophane and florals, emulating a wedding bouquet.
