Jean Paul Gaultier ready to wear – SS15

Jean Paul Gaultier has announced that after over three decades of being fashion’s Enfant Terrible, he would cease both his ready-to-wear collections to concentrate on couture and special projects.

With categories ranging from “Miss Footballer’s Wife” where models strutted down the runway with cell phones taking selfies to “Miss Fashion Editor” where models served as doppelgangers to editors like Carine Roitfeld, Suzy Menkes and Grace Coddington; it was a flamboyant spectacle that one would expect associated with the Gaultier name.

The designer offered up reworked versions of his greatest hits such as 80s-inspired corset looks, tailored suiting (sometimes with only one half of a jacket) and bold colorful stripes. Gaultier says he is ending his ready-to-wear line to focus on his fragrance and haute couture collection, but with a nearly forty year run–it will certainly be missed.
