We all know Karl Lagerfeld is relentless, superior, eccentric and bit of freak chic. With this years SS 2013 collection on a runway dotted with wind tunnels and eco fab, he is now insurmountable aka no one can bring it like he does.
Recreating the 80’s-90’s with a new and fresh twist Karl Lagerfeld focused on material and recreation of shape for SS 2013. Always an original he crossed pattern with shape making the figure less of a focus and focusing on big, bulky, large and fab! Always an original, he even added a little humor with his own take on obtuse bags, giving the house of Chanel a complete WIN!
Let’s take a look shall we;
(Forgive the late posting darlings, I am felled by the evilest of fever flu’s. If I don’t make sense chalk it up to my fever of 100 F)
I admit I am a huge fan of 80’s music. All things one hit wonder I have on my iPod and of course I am a ridiculous Bowie fan. I am also a HUGE Jean Paul Gaultier fan.
When these two things coincide and come together we have JPG’s SS 2013 collection.
This season he conquered eccentric costume clothing for SS 2013 and took the 80’s back. Jean Paul Gaultier re-created something that was both an homage and a new look at an old glamorous style with geometric shapes, sheer clothing and dashes of monochromatic mixed with blinding and beautiful color prints.
As usual he conquered Paris Fashion Week SS 2013 with everything Gaultier. With KISS in the front row causing quite a stir he started the show with fierce 80’s inspired suits, complete with sexy cut outs and ending with Amanda Lear and a cavalcade of sexy man beasts in mesh outfits sporting sky-high platform heels (not boots, heels).

No wonder this man is one of my top five favorite designers. His insane quality, design, style and vision most definitely set him apart.
