Goodbye the brand-new, hello the brand-old! For the final haute couture collection Spring-Summer 2020, which marked 50 years of his career, Jean-Paul Gaultier looked back at his forever obsessions: jeans, corsets, sailor shirts, androgyny… Pieces reused and transformed, to be loved again!
MAKE IT DO
Nothing is wasted. Everything old is new again in Haute Couture: a fresh start for baby dolls, mesh stockings, gloves, Chinese fans, cravats.
Undies go above and beyond, strutting their stuff in grand Couture fashion.
Some belt-tightening is in order for Haute Couture. But it suits her, no?
Couture’s wildest erotic dream. Seamen. Stripes. Skin-tight blue and white …
LIVE AND LET DYE
Turbulence ahead: upcycled jeans with a couture twist. Denim life vests are in pockets under your seats.
PAS MON GENRE
Tailoring cuts across genders for multi-sex Couture Classics.
Classics restyled with a decadent spin: the appendages are pure Couture.
Old friends always wear it best.
PEACE ON ME
Couture camo, visible only to bad (bad!) guys. Surrender and let the peace talks begin.
A Celtic groove, with a girl who’ll pop your Cork.
LOOK AT RGZ FINE PRINT
Couture reborn in emotional motifs: Hèrmes and Gaultier scarves; granny’s old beaded bags; dented, knocked-up leather à la César; crazy braided bits and other upcycled treasures.
Hundreds of hours of embroidered designs, for just a few moments of Beauty.
A love letter in Couture, to all the freckle faces.
WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
Pure fabrication. Made out of whole cloth.
