Jean Paul Gaultier Couture F/W 2010: The Lady & The Vamp

You’d always do well to expect a certain amount of raunch from a JPG collection and Gaultier’s showing for this season’s Parisian couture week was definitely no exception to the rule, showcasing as it did two pieces from the upcoming JPG/La Perla Lingerie capsule collection with a little Parisienne Ooh la la from Queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese.

Of course it wasn’t all about lingerie…taking us back to his classics – the signature trench coat reworked first in black gabardine with voluminous batwings and then again in ivory silk, the Madonna cones reincarnated in black mink – Gaultier served up a heady dose of provocative Parisian chic with a delectably Deco twist.

Models sashayed down the runway wearing high twisted turbans, oozing feminine glamour and smoking from elegant cigarette holders like achingly cool spectres of silver screen legend Louis Brooke. Structured shoulders, generous sleeves and hobble-inducing pencil skirts all served to supe-up the voluptuous silhouette of Gaultier’s girls to show-stopping proportions. Essentially, this collection was Jean Paul Gaultier doing what he does best: self-assured,  sassy. Sex. On. Legs.

And boy does he do it well…
