Over half the show comprised menswear, with coats, tails hats, sequins, crystals and leggings. Almost gothic, but more refined, some looks were reminiscent of Richard Burton in Taming of The Shrew.
Not to be confined to the usual fashion solutions, the show opened with a women's pinstriped suit, paired with tutu tulle.
This was a collection for the mavens who want luxury haute couture with rocked up street cred. Mylene Farmer, the most successful French recording artist of all time featured in the finale, in Gaultiers' bridal offering (tight leather jacket, net mini-crinoline and giant platforms).
