Decoding the Runway: Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Couture

Jean paul gaultier

Jean Paul Gaultier put up an incredible couture show, one that had a whole lot of sex appeal, statement silhoettes and most of all killer wedges. So many women have told me that they hate chunky heels because it makes their legs look fat,well girls get over it, because these are just screaming to be worn. Ultra high wedges with thread detail and style lines that compliment the shape of the foot, these are a must have for anyone who can afford it.

Whilst the whole collection was teamed up with the tread work wedges, there were a few anomalies that really stood out. The so ugly it’s gorgeous shoe above (left) is one that will be a conversation starter everywhere you go. Lace as we know, is a definite trend for footwear this season and Gaultier couldn’t resist popping one pair in the collection. Although it doesn’t fit with his shoe story, it does play well with the collection. The whole collection was quite an homage to the late Amy Winehouse, who knew JPG was such a fan? It’s true what they say, inspiration can be found in many and any place.
