New School’s In Session–Jean Paul Gaultier’s man returns to school for the spring 2012 seaon. Delivering courses in formal etiquette, tropical liasons, British discourse and sea strides, Gaultier showcases a multi-layered story in a fashion only he can. While the themes may be diverse, they are all brought together with a youthful spirit, tied to a simple pair of sneakers. In this world, Hawaiian prints dress fitted ensembles, while the casual day to day outing features an exuberant amount of pleating and enticing evening jackets. Draping a jacket for a quirky feat, the collection also features the classic varsity jacket, remarkably kept calm save for a lace edge waistcoat contained underneath. Embracing a wide silhouette but the look of tradition, pin striped suits make an appearance alongside an array of tartan dressed separates layered with an inch of fashion insanity. Altogether, long reaching but divinely Gaultier, the collection sets a season high note with an interesting aspect of accessibility.
