Lets Start the Year with J.P Gaultier - Haute Couture

Hello there!

For my first post of this year, I thought I should return to the very begining of my blog, to the reviews on different collection, as I haven't had a post like this since ages.
This time is a haute couture collection - Jean Paul Gaultier for fall-winter 2011/2012. From all the haute couture collections this one is the far my favourite, even though for ready to wear was Karl Lagerfelds collection.
So I'll start with the colours. Like all the collections this year, black was the main colour and the other well only to complement this dark tone. You'll see in this collection grey, olive, red, navy blue and a touch of beige, purple, white, brown and silver & gold.
As for the fabrics we can see leather, fur and feathers in almost every garment, silk, lace, satin, chiffon, tulle, velvet, sequins and organza.
The clothes are extravagant as the designer used so much fur and feathers in them. We can see many luxurious coats, fur coats, some combined with feathers for a more dramatic & glamorous look, leather coats all combined with fur collars. There are also capes in this collection. The blazers and jackets are very tailored and worn with pencil skirts. The woman dresses most of them made out of chiffon, sequins, tulle and satin are accessorised with fur coats and feathers, give me (but well maybe it's just me) a south american/western vibe from the late 1800 and a bit of a parisian vibe from the same period. The trenches are transformed into chiffon dresses.
But what I really liked in this collection well is the mixing between women clothes and menswear. So the men suits are made of satin, which is a fabric for women clothes, and are associated with capes and fur coats, that have that aristocratic look from the 1600 era in England and Italy. All the men's clothes have a powerful feminine vibe in them starting with the fabrics and ending with the actual design, see the glitter blouses and the lace pants!
As for me my favourite looks you can see in the first 4 images the suit and the colourful dress!

Pt. primul meu post din acest an, m'am gandit ca ar fi cazul sa ma reintorc la inceputurile blogului meu, mai exact la reviewurile asupra colectiilor de moda, avand in vedere ca n'am mai avut un post de genul de secole.
De data aceasta este o colectie haute couture - Jean Paul Gaultier colectia de toamna-iarna 2011/2012. Dintre toate colectiile de haute couture este de departe preferata mea, chiar daca pt. pret-a-porter a fost cea a lui Karl Lagerfeld pt. Chanel.
Am sa incep cu culorile. Ca in majoritatea colectiilor din acest an, negrul a fost culoarea principala si celelalte nu au facut decat sa scoata in evidenta tonurile intunecate ale acesteia. Veti vedea in aceasta colectie gri, masliniu, rosu, bleumarin si un strop de bej, mov, alb, maro si auriu si argintiu.
In ceea ce priveste materialele avem pielea, blana si pene in aproape fiecare piesa vestimentara, matase, dantela, satin, chiffon, tulle, catifea, paiete si organza.
Cum designerul a folosit foarte mult blana si penele, hainele sunt extravagante. Putem vedea multe haine luxurioase, haine de blana, unele combinate cu pene pentru mai mult dramatism si glam, haine de piele combinate cu gulere de blana. De asemenea, intalnim si cape in aceasta colectie. Sacourile si jachetele cu croiala fixa, bine cambrate pe corp, purtate cu fuste creion. Rochiile, majoritatea dintre ele din chiffon, paiete, tulle sau satin sunt accesorizate cu haine de blana si pene, si imi dau senzatia (ei bine poate sunt doar eu) de haine western de pe la sfarsitul lui 1800 si asa o usoara tenta pariziana din aceeasi perioada. Paltoanele, de aceasta data, au fost transformate in rochii din chiffon.
Insa ceea ce mi'a placut cel mai mult la aceasta colectie a fost mix'ul dintre moda feminina si cea masculina. Asadar, costumele barbatesti sunt facute din satin, care este un material pt. haine de femei, si sunt combinate cu cape sau haine de blana, care aduc putin cu tinutele aristocratice din Anglia si Italia anilor 1600. Toate hainele barbatesti emana foarte multa feminitate incepand cu materialele si sfarsind cu designul in sine, vedeti bluzele sclipicioase si pantalonii din dantela!
In ceea ce ma priveste pe mine, tinutele mele preferate le puteti vedea in primele 4 imagini, costumul si rochia foarte colorata!
