Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garcons

This man is a genius. And I don't think I can even explain why. I adore the first two looks, mainly because he takes something so obviously masculine -- a slouchy menswear suit that doesn't even look like it's been tailored for a woman -- and wraps the legs in something incredibly feminine -- garters. I have to say that this may be the most artful combination of masculine and feminine that I've seen in a while.

I'm not the biggest fan of Vivienne Westwood, but I truly enjoyed this collection. Favorites include the gigantic scarf/blankets and the printed jacket (#5); it looks like abstracted peacock feathers or something.

For the first time since middle school or so (true story), I can say that I really loved Comme des Garcons. Cheeky trompe-l'oeil on the shoes and capes, weird kerchief hems and hair wrapped up like bouquets of flowers. Yum.
