Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring 2018

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2018 couture show was a noted tribute to the designer Pierre Cardin, most known for his mod creations and space age designs of the 1960s. Here, our show notes on the collection.

Memorable piece —

Look 22, which was part of a series of monochromatic looks. This one consisted of a bright fuchsia-hued suit and gravity-defying hair (by Odile Gilbert) that matched the color almost exactly.

Remarkable fabric —

Look 47, a jumpsuit made of op art fabrics and hallucinatory paillettes—enough to make anyone do a double take.

Best accessory —

The dizzying array of mod inspired drop earrings in black and white.

Model standout –

Coco Rocha walked her two-year-old daughter down the runway in a matching outfit (with matching hair). The two did a synchronized dance that had everyone in the room on their feet trying to take photos.

Collection inspiration —

Pierre Cardin was the collection’s inspiration. The show notes described it as an homage.

Front row celebs –

Pierre Cardin himself was in the front row. The 95-year-old had camera crews surrounding him before he took his seat, and drag queen Violet Chachki was there, too.

Potential trend —

A revival of ‘60s style, black and white prints and op art illusions on clothing—along with fun shoulder dusting earrings.
