Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2012 Runway Review

Jean Paul Gaultier may have been inspired by grunge, rock-n-roll, and graffiti, but his tailored Fall 2012 collection was nothing if not sophisticated. Heavy on black, the designer kept his collection luxe with crisp menswear-inspired suiting, vibrantly colored fur separates (notably skirts, jackets, and vests), skin-grazing bronze trousers, and beautiful skirts including knotted ones and one inspired by a blazer. As for the 80s-style graffiti print, it made its way onto a slew of separates and dresses, most notably a pair of trousers with metallic graffiti on the top that slowly transitioned into black — let's hope there are enough cool girls (Rihanna perhaps?) to do them justice.
