Gaultier Couture Fall 2005

The first thing I heard about Gaultier's Fall Couture collection is that he included fur skirts...!! Well, they sounded weird, but here is the proof. Quite lovely.

The obvious Russian influence really shows in this fabulously patterned coat. The redingote shape seems to be very evident.

A very interesting shaped hemline with embellishment.

A lovely black suit if we ignore the unusual headdress.

Interesting positive/negative effect, but it seems to have nothing whatever to do with the rest of the collection.

Here we are with a fabulous evening gown that could only be couture. Idiosyncratic draping, ties, etc. The kind of thing that the uninitiated think anyone could throw together, but if they tried it, it would look like they threw it together. Here, everything is obviously carefully placed in just the right position. Lovely.

Great sleeves, and what a slinky column dress!
