The Jean Paul Gaultier fall 2013 couture collection was a '80s style wild trip. The only constant of the Jean Paul Gaultier label is eclecticism with bold allure and the label's signature was more than obvious in the new haute couture collection. What better way to embrace stereotypes than to take them to a whole new level? The designer's love for big wild cats could not be doubted: the chosen soundtrack for the Jean Paul Gaultier fall 2013 couture show was 'Pink Panter' and heavy animal prints were the focus of the show's first 15 looks.

The designer didn't stop at feline-inspired looks. To do so would have been a poor representation of his seemingly limitless creative potential. He played with royal blues, gold, hot pinks, and plum tones, conical shapes and exaggerated proportions.
