For Spring 2013 Couture, Jean Paul Gaultier’s ‘Indian Gypsies’ Has You Seeing Gold

For the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2013 Couture collection, the designer showed us how he still knows how to have fun, how to follow a woman’s curves & what it is to be a true couturier.  With the collection being called ’ Indian Gypsies’, the collection had obvious elements found in Indian wear including plenty of gold embellishments yet, the ‘Gypsy’ part came in the form of looks that although couture, were still very wearable with a lot of freedom including various pant looks like harem or loose-fitting trousers or even, the sequined patchwork number (row 1, look 2).  The cutout bust top in look 4 is reminiscent of past designs but still very relevant when paired with those pants, cool gold socks + open sandals.

Of the dresses in the collection, a lot of them had a fishtail bottom which flatters just about anybody whereas others, were either very loose + dramatic similar to a caftan or simply a log column with wispy swatches of what looks like chiffon with a robe type top (row 2, look 3).  The dropped shoulders on many of the dresses and tops was an uber sexy and attractive feature.

With luxury slapping you in the face at every turn, it was most evident in these three pieces below, including the bride in the center – the shimmering mermaid dress is just gorgeous.

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2013 Couture collection simply served high drama with an emphasis on being all woman + carefree like a gypsy.
