Jean-Paul Gaultier is still fashion's Enfant Terrible! To present his winter ski resort and Christmas carols themed Haute Couture Fall 2017-2018 collection Gaultier unleashed a 'fashion snow storm'. The outfits bore witty names such as Lady Gla Gla, Igloo Igloo, Santa Clothes, Anna Winter, ‘Gstaad the way it is’, Robe in Hood and Be Polaire which confirm the couturier’s irreverent spirit while the soundtrack veered from crystalline Björk tunes  to the Donna Summer’s disco anthem “Bad Girls”.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Snow Queen
Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2017-2018 Collection

No one could ever accuse Jean-Paul Gaultier of being boring: Jean-Paul Gaultier is still fashion's Enfant Terrible! The maverick French couturier has dressed men in skirts, created Madonna's infamous cone bras for her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour and championed models of all shapes and sizes on his runway in his ongoing mission to challenge gender stereotypes and reflect social change through fashion. “I try to show that there is not only one kind of beauty,Gaultier  once said. “Open your mind and you can find beauty everywhere. I like to explore the frontier of what can be seen as vulgar and tacky and what is elegant and beautiful.”

To present his winter ski resort and Christmas carols themed Haute Couture Fall 2017 collection Gaultier unleashed a 'fashion snow storm'.  “My initial inspiration was India,” the French designer told Fashion Unfiltered “but under the snow -- hence a sari inspiration, but reworked for winter.”  The outfits bore witty names such as Lady Gla Gla, Igloo Igloo, Santa Clothes, Anna Winter, ‘Gstaad the way it is’, Robe in Hood and Be Polaire which confirm the couturier’s irreverent spirit while the soundtrack veered from crystalline Björk tunes  to the Donna Summer’s disco anthem “Bad Girls”.
 
L’Enfant Terrible de la Mode likes to go literal with a theme, so there were quilted velvet coats with kimono sleeves, a chiseled black rabbit fur jacket shining with jet beads, an Aran pullover shaped like pearls lined with mink giant fur caps, and knitted ones topped with extra large pom-poms, oversized sweaters, velvet skypants and giant caps.  “There are pullovers and they're trompe l'oeile – it's winter but it's sophisticated. The idea was that I wanted to mix winter but also with the sari, this idea of the sun and the exotic,Gaultier said. Slightly subtler allusions included Swarovski ice crystals on a nude tulle top, or snowflake embroidery on a dégradé gray velvet skirt suit.
The Gaultier’s show was closed by supermodel Coco Rocha, who drove out on the catwalk in a custom-made city-tour buggy bike wearing a semi-transparent white mini dress over a clingy golden jumpsuit.

The Last Word. Haute Couture is all about attention to detail, finishing, exquisite embellishments,  and Jean-Paul Gaultier’s Fall-Winter 2017-2018 couture collection featured, as always, intricate structures — confirming that he is currently very focused on his impeccable tailoring.  “The presentation may have been a lark, but the actual clothes were marvels of construction and reflected the mood of the moment. Wide shoulders, which Gaultier knew so well in his 1980s heyday, were re-cut: wide and angular for the new millennium. It is the insouciance of his work – the one-shoulder ‘onesie’ impeccably fitted but presented so casually – which marks Gaultier out.” wrote Suzy Menkes (International Vogue Editor and world-renowned fashion journalist). IPSE DIXIT!
