Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall 2010 presentation took us on a global adventure. We visited West Africa, Turkey, Peru, Morocco, Thailand, India, Russia, Greece, China and many other exotic locations.
The looks were mixed: Chinese silks were paired with Moroccan shoes and West African head scarves. This was best presented by Coco Rocha’s look above.
Thigh-high boots continue to rule the runway but JPG presented us boots which were printed with either florals or stripes. Trench coats were cut to the thigh to show off the boots.
The PETA protesters chanted outside the venue, but that didn’t prevent JPG from presenting pieces trimmed with fox fur and mink.
Jewelery and ankle bells jingled over the loud live band who played the African drums and other instruments.
Other distinct accessories included Masai necklaces.
We saw embroidered tunics, Greek pleated skirts, silk cheongsams, gypsy skirts, military coats, sharply tailored pinstriped suits and very baggy harem pants.
Will we see this collection on the red carpet?
I didn’t think we’d see the previous collection on the red carpet, but it was worn by Dita von Teese and Rihanna so we will have to wait and see.
Gaultier was in very high spirits as he sprinted down the runway at the end of the presentation which you can see in the video.
Normally at this point Anna Wintour rushes out of a venue, but she was still clapping along to the music after JPG had exited the runway and I sensed she was hanging around for a reason.
Then JPG ran back onto the runway, this time wearing a fur trimmed rucksack on his back which had been worn by Sasha Pivovarova during the presentation.
Oh how everyone laughed.
