Haute couture spring summer 2015: when Jean Paul Gaultier chooses a bridal theme, Raf Simons takes us back to the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s


The real challenge for designers is finding silhouettes that reflect the spirit of the times. This year Raf Simons for Dior took a gamble, combining sartorial references from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Breaking with tradition, Jean Paul Gaultier took the figure of the bride as his central inspiration ….Quite the move for someone who’d previously only ever treated marriage as comic material!
