Spring 2014 RTW : Jean Paul Gaultier, Comme Des Garçons and Maxime Simoëns

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Jean Paul Gaultier, Comme Des Garçons and Maxime Simoëns

 

Jean Paul Gaultier

The collection was an ode to the power combination of music and fashion. References to Grease, Madonna and even Amy Winehouse could not have been more obvious. That said, the leather separates made a big impact as did the off shoulder ruffled dresses.

Comme Des Garçons

It would perhaps be easier to mock this collection but the underlying truth remains that when it comes to fashion, there are forms and constraints and ‘proper’ variations. Through this collection the designer meant to break those rules showcase what fashion could also be, when the clothing takes a life of it’s own and the wearer is just a model. Arguing over the wearability of the garments would be futile when they’re meant to perform a function rather than please aesthetically.

The collection had that cool detached charm of Balmain. I loved the pant and the use of zippers over it. The dresses are also very modern and sleek.
