The Bosideng X Gaultier collection of this show, featured in this show, centers around Gaultier’s most classic design concept of black-white contrast. This collection has inherited both the classic elements of Gaultier’s design such as tiger prints and checkerboard patterns and Bosideng's professionalism, excellence, technology and techniques in making down jackets.
Gaultier is as bold as before with his design this time. He’s mixed black and white stripes with animal prints. This exotic and wild mix intensifies the visual impact. At the same time, the carefully selected luxury satin helps to give the items natural luster and silky smoothness.
The checkerboard pattern down jacket has been highly praised by fashion authorities as well. Inspired by the classic black-white contrast of Gautier’s haute couture collections, a unique contrast-color checkerboard pattern is created using piecing techniques. With incorporation of Bosideng’s modelling techniques, his haute couture design is perfectly transferred to the down jackets.
