Jean-Paul Gaultier, haute couture calligrapher

The Jean-Paul Gaultier haute couture Spring Summer ’09 collection was presented last winter. There were arabesques on black and white outfits. It looked as if a calligrapher had used an ink brush to draw the dresses’ patterns but also the model’s jewels and hairstyles.

On this dress I believe I can read “Jean-Paul Gaultier Paris”. The text is written on the bottom of the dress, on the veil behind the dress and on the leggings as well.

This other outfit is adorned with a magnificent three-dimensional arabesque. The same theme has inspired the intricate earrings and sophisticated hairstyle of the model.

I liked this graphic collection a lot. I have shown only two outfits but you can see the whole fashion show on Vogue and coutorture websites.
