Many an artist have been inspired by street culture, and from art to style and lifestyle, Gaultier's fall 2012 collection embraces all. Gaultier intertwines graffiti, leather, trench coats and sweat wear beautifully with his classic silk, chiffon, and European influences. However, for my taste there is but one flaw: too much colored fur. Though the orange fur jackets are gorgeous for those who embrace the style, I can and will not add it to an otherwise flawless statement dress. Gaultier's collection brings forth yet another controversial trend: classy sweatpants which I am personally excited to embrace this fall.
