Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2009 couture collection ----Great inspiration from architecture

While the Chanel couture collection was inspired by paper, it was calligraphy that inspired the new Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection.


While models in Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring 2009 couture collection waltzed down the runway, an image of a pen-and-ink going through strange computer-generated distortions played in the background.


Not surprisingly, his inspiration lay in the age old art of calligraphy (abstract, of course, with loops and swooshes morphing into hard lines and crested edges).


However, on second glance, each piece in the collection looked more like a guided walking tour of Wells Cathedral, the most poetic of the English cathedrals (known for its early Gothic interior and signature 'scissor arches.')
































Gaultier introduced his dreamy couture creations that featured see-through fabrics, fishnets, embroideries, and high-waisted skirts and pants that illustrated the mastery of his craftsmanship.

The colour theories applied: it is mainly achromatic .Lace and embroidery were just some of the exclusive, meticulous details which came in black and white, like ink on paper.
Trousers turned into corsets, and silhouettes took on an 80s look with dresses, some of which were inspired by swimsuits.

For the rest of my thoughts on the show, just read more.

Indeed there was a lot of sheer in the collection as Gaultier's cheeky playfulness shone through. There was an undeniable '80s vibe with power shoulders on power suits and Madonna style bodice . The '80s influence was confirmed when ex-Chanel model Ines de la Fressange ended the show.
