5 Things We Loved at Paris Fashion Week Today: Ciara, Jean Paul Gaultier’s … – Vogue.com
It was a day of firsts and fond farewells at Paris Fashion Week, including David Koma’s debut at Mugler and Jean Paul Gaultier’s final runway show. With a career reaching back to the seventies, the legendary Parisian designer bid adieu in spectacular fashion, stopping traffic outside Le Grand Rex theater as mobs of fans gathered on the sidewalk. See what else topped the list of memorable moments in our daily roundup.
1. Minnie Mouse meets la marinière at Junya Watanabe. The perfect marriage of Disney World and Breton stripes in the space of one shirt.
2. Blushing pink at Haider Ackermann. The prettiest bomber jacket of our dreams turned up at the designer’s show this morning.
4. Nicholas Kirkwood’s poster art installation. Fans of the artist Tadanori Yokoo would appreciate the homage to late sixties poster art at the shoe designer’s presentation today.
5. A fond farewell to JPG: Staged in the format of a Miss Universe–style contest that included a WAGS category, Jean Paul Gaultier’s last show was as riotous, irreverent, and ridiculously fun as you would expect.
