Jean Paul Gaultier Resort 2015

Graphic elements were mixed into the designer's latest collection, which he often piled on together for an eclectic and optimistic look.

Bright colorblocking, photo prints of wheat fields and roads, painterly Fifties daisies, Egyptian hieroglyphics and, of course, nautical stripes. All of the above were graphic elements mixed into Jean Paul Gaultier’s latest resort collection, which he often piled on together for an eclectic and optimistic look. The silhouettes were based on the playful idea of slicing a garment and recreating a geometrical composition, thus an evening dress was cut as an apron or lopped in half and stitched over a sporty, white T-shirt dress. Corset lacing was also shown on several tailored pieces, i.e., up the side and shoulders of a sleek jacket.
