Jean Paul Gaultier Leads the Game

I recently dug into the archives of fashion's "enfant terrible" Jean Paul Gaultier, and learnt what a true fashion pioneer means. Digging into his previous seasons' works, I saw his innovation being re-used on catwalks by some of the most famous designers today.

Here are the examples:

Maison Martin Margiela SS09 disguised model
Jean Paul Gaultier SS04 disguised model

Chanel SS10 Barn Theme with Flirty Play on Florals
Jean Paul Gaultier SS06 Barn Theme with Darker Play on Florals

Miu Miu SS10 Shirt-Collar Necklace
Jean Paul Gaultier SS01 Disengaged Shirt Collar

His collections may not have been picking up the most attention lately and there may have been occasions of recycled looks from the past, but within each season lies an innate Gaultier innovation that is reborn every six months.

I adore you too, Monsieur Gaultier.
