French dressing at JPG

As a tribute to Bastille Day, a gallery of our favourite designs from Jean Paul Gaultier’s quintessentially French haute couture winter 2015-16 collection shown in Paris last week.

Gaultier’s beloved Breton stripes were a strong feature, as well as gold thread embroidery inspired by the costumes of Brittany’s bagad bands.

Pants parade

Expect to see more pants on the red carpet in the near future. The trouser suit was a dominant trend to emerge from the haute couture shows in Paris last week.
