Known for rebelling against the hand of conformity, it is not a surprise that the Jean Paul Gaultier spring 2010 collection breaks with traditional gender roles. Solid skirts and bustiers season an eclectic mix of reverse coloring, horizontal gradients and both prison and nautical stripes. The bustier acts as the collection’s central piece–appearing underneath a great deal of blazers as well as on its own. Contrasting trim adds depth to a collection geared towards a younger adventurous consumer. Bold and weightless, the collection’s sheer jackets are no surprise. If the aforementioned elements are not enough to warrant variety, Gaultier throws denim into the mix, not only cutting out swatches of fabric, but incorporating a tangled arrangement of bondage straps. As a final note, the collection’s persistent use of translucent Converse solidify its intended reach for a younger audience who is willing to put their trust in Gaultier, lay back and enjoy the ride.
