It’s the most wonderful time of the year — haute couture fashion week. And while there was plenty of buzz off the runways, from Jean Paul Gaultier announcing his retirement to Balenciaga deciding to give haute couture another go, it was the clothes shown on the catwalks that really stole the spotlight.
Gaultier pulled out all the stops with a collection of his best works modeled by everyone from Gigi Hadid to Dita Von Teese. All eyes were also on Virginie Viard as she presented Chanel’s second haute couture collection under her tenure.
