Rousteing gives one-off Gaultier couture display in Paris


AP Fashion Writer

PARIS (AP) — An enfant terrible has appeared in a new guise as designer Olivier Rousteing of Balmain took a one-off shot at a couture collection for the house of Jean Paul Gaultier. Taking the codes of Gaultier — structured tailoring, Breton striped tops and the conical bra — Rousteing let his hair down on Wednesday for a tongue-in-cheek homage to Jean Paul Gaultier, who retired in 2020. There was something shamanic in the air at Elie Saab, who fused his usual show-stopping fare with the supernatural in rare co-ed show. And French couturier and lover of art and theater Franck Sorbier took his audience back in time to a Renaissance universe of court jesters, fairytale maidens and cantering horses.
