Jean-Paul Gaultier says goodbye at the end of his fall-winter 2014-15 collection
The hottest show of the week will be expected on the last day by Jean Paul Gaultier and it will bet he very last ready-to wear collection of the brand after 38 years. In future the house Gauthier will focus on haute couture and perfume.
Among the week’s highlights: Dries Van Noten.
Dries Van Noten, the collection is inspired by the idea of John Everett Millais Ophelia (1852) and also by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Both reconcile the mythical fairy world with golden illuminated colours and fabrics with the woodland’s forest mossy floor. Van Noten and his team asked the Buenos Aires artist Alexandra Kehayoglou to weave a rug in all those mossy colours for the runway. There were block-striped silk, pajama patterns in filmiest fabrics, patched brocade and shimmering combinations of jacquard and Lurex; some glinting with metallic stripes.
At the finale, all models took a rest on the wonderful carpet. Hippie stylish – languid sprawling on soft mossy grass!
