Okay, So I am the biggest Gaultier fan there ever was and will be, but the Spring 2009 Ready to Wear collection was one of the most boring ones out of all his collections. Could Hermes have drained his creativity? The looks above are my most favorite out of collection. I think Gaultier is a better costume designer than fashion designer, because when he designs costumes , he doesn’t have the pressure to sell, but when he designs fashion collections , he has to make sure that women can wear his clothes on the street in real life without looking a foolio. ‘The Fifth Element’ and ‘The Cook , the Wife, The Thief and His Lover’ are his best works in film. His Couture collections are killer , too. It must be hard to tone down your creativity for the sake of sales.
