Jean Paul Gaultier hails in the season with layers upon layers. One can envision the stylists pilfering through trunks from past family members to style the show. Well of course all of these family members were world trotters and one of these family members had a military tendency and found someway to bring a softness to the style, while the other went for a bohemian chic. A third, was all about the sweater and the various ways to dress it.

JPG is a line that I’ve liked for a while and this newest collection only makes me love it. With touches of Eastern and African inspiration and the various other trends that run through the collection. The front row held names like Carine Roitfeld from Paris Vogue(apparently they weren’t blacklisted from JPG like they were from Balenciaga), Cathy Horyn from The New York Times’, and Michael Roberts from Vanity Fair
With names like Karlie Kloss, Sasha Pivovarova, and Coco Rocha the casting was full of big names. Diversity wasn’t a problem either with names like Sessilee Lopez, Rose Cordero, and Liu Wen. All of the girls had very strong looks, as any good runway model should and embodied the line well.
From what I’ve seen of the collection it’s a melting pot of alot of different cultures and tastes. Maybe because of the way our world is so rapidly globalizing, and it’s expressing how interconnected we’re all becoming, but whatever it still makes me a believer in mixing and matching.

Leather, violence, black, and boots are trends that rocked the Milan Menswear shows and it seems that either Paris got the same memo, or atleast Jean Paul Gaultier did. Sending his models out in wrestler’s garb complete with cuts and scrapes as if from a recent fight, JPG hit on yet another trend that is gaining traction; sportswear cum casualwear. Of course in saying this collection is just one chock full of trends, it still has it’s own individuality, and there are pieces that I would of course love to own.

As you can see it’s about layering. It’s about layering the tight pants and muscle shirt with a bulky sweater, cardigan, or scarf, and a long thick bulky jacket. It’s about playing with proportions for the season. About finding what looks right on you and well… I’m all for that. They do all look to have a swimmers build to me though. Huge upper body with a smaller streamlined lower one… but maybe I’m reading into it too much.
