gaultier’s cheek & valentino’s tweak

Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2009/10

Gaultier really staged a show in his typical tongue-in-cheek style, even taking his bow while chowing down on ice cream. Check out the full Old Hollywood-inspired collection here.

Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2009/10

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli are fighting an uphill battle as the second designers to succeed Valentino. Their F/W couture collection satisfied more than their first, but still didn’t achieve a solid identity. There was a divergence from the Valentino of old however with the heavy use of lace, short hemlines and the lack of trademark red.  There’s some optimism but I think most are adopting and wait and see approach with this design team. Check out the full collection here.
