Indian Gypsies In Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture Collection

908-x5gol.St.55

For his Couture line, Jean Paul Gaultier imagined for this season a collection that he entitled ”Indian Gypsies”, in which wide skirts brought to mind fortune tellers’ outfits, fringes and frills created hypnotic effects, bright prints drew the eye and minute embroideries, crystal appliqués and Oriental jewelry and accessories brought to the runway the optimistic and joyful aesthetic of the far-away Eastern lands.

Gaultier didn’t give up on his signature pieces, though, subtly including them into his couture line: trench coats were worn over fluid dresses, a smoking was sweetened by the presence of gypsy jewelry and even corset-shaped tops and the famous cone bra appeared on the runway.
