Gaultier used the style of the eighties to showcase his couture spring 2017 collection. With styles we’re mostly familiar with, such as the strong-shouldered silhouettes; bolero jackets, with an added twist of sombrero hats. There were the colors of patriotic red, white and blue, and Hawaiian floral prints ranging from daisy patterns to photo prints of poppies.
It wouldn’t be a Gaultier show without his signature pant suits in haute fabrications, such as trompe-l’oeil pinstripes. We then saw outfits such as black tuxedo trousers dressed down with an undone pink corset and embroidered white undershirt.
We can always expect some sort of theatrics from Gaultier’s show finales, as we saw Coco Rocha jumping from a swing and twirling down the catwalk, before being scooped up by a hunky farm hand in overalls and rolled away in a wheelbarrow.
