2013 Autumn Winter Paris Fashion Week: Jean Paul Gaultier
The rocker chick always has a place at Jean Paul Gaultier, and for Autumn Winter '13, she's taken on a distinct '80s punk vibe. Wherein, the styling is subtly subversive and the confidence of the JPG woman is bolder than ever. Models (with mohawks) took the runway — as "Iron" by Woodkid played overhead — in an assortment of off-the-shoulder silhouettes mixed with loud jewellery, printed and patchwork-infused pieces paired with sweeping floor-length outerwear, and of course, the designer's signature strong-shouldered blazers and pantsuits set in metallic sheens. As for the finale? Models posed seductively behind a Jean Paul Gaultier-monogrammed light screen, which projected their shadowed figures out at showgoers like a scene from a vintage burlesque number. For JPG, though, this kind of epic rock-star showmanship is par for the course. See all of the looks inside.
