Eclectic ConvergenceJean Paul Gaultier marries a myriad of references for his latest collection in which Eastern and Western motifs collide for an inspiring presentation. Accessorized with turbans, the man of Jean Paul Gaultier makes a strong style statement. Combining his signature love for all things nautical with a penchant for mixing classic and edgy design ideas, a bold wardrobe unfolds. Lace adorned tops are met with python printed suiting that is not complete without a reinterpretation of the traditional silhouette. With shoulders halved, fabrics draped and occasionally pieces cut out, Gaultier subscribes to a fun season of great energy. Boasting pops of bold red and yellow, the collection has its standout moments, also applying micro-dots and stripes to covetable pieces, ranging from wide-fit sailor shorts and sleeveless motorcycle jackets to boxy-cut knitwear.
