Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2013 Runway Review

Jean Paul Gaultier kicked off his Fall 2013 collection with tops made of stiff fabrics; molded to the models' bodies in an armor-like fashion, they were paired with contrastingly loose, nearly floor grazing skirts or hyper bodycon trousers. More Beyonce than anything even the more fashion-forward woman would likely wear, there was more appeal in the designer's belted and loose fitting trenches, off-the-shoulder tops and slouchy knits. Prints and patchwork looks were also prominently featured (including patchworked fur), which, like the armor-like pieces, appeared questionable in their ability to translate to a retail floor.
