Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn/Winter 2011/2012

Last week, a friend of mine got invited to Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter Fashion Show, and she asked me to accompany her. The event was held in Qi Lounge in Hotel Sultan on October 25, 2011. It's also the soft opening of the lounge.

I'm terribly sorry for the crappy pictures -.-' It was very dark inside and it's hard to keep the focus on the walking models.

You'd see models with grey beehives hair wore layers of clothes and then took the cardigan or blazer off one by one as they passed by. However, I a bit felt like the clothes were for old ladies. It might because of the grey hair. It could be the sweater or the longer skirt hem (it was fall/winter collection after all). The collection was dominated with black and red, even though I saw a hint of grey and white here and there. The collection was pretty basic to me.

Even though it wasn't as expected, I was still able to spot a few exciting items. I love the neat tight fitting dresses. They were sexy and the longer hem made them classy. However, I love the dress pictured above the most. Initially it looked like an ordinary navy stripes dress with oatmeat color cardigan. However, it was actually one piece of clothing! If you unbutton the cardigan and kind of let it fall, it became a pretty casual yet elegant long dress. Isn't it interesting?

Anyway, I was hoping to see out-of-the-world pieces of clothing in the fashion show. I knew it was not the haute couture collection, but it was Jean Paul Gaultier, so I expect at least a pop of the extraordinary. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I believe, it was the most wearable collection of JPG to date.
