Gaultier's show entitled James Blond was a subverted take on the iconic film hero. Playing with the stero type, often a favourite of Gaultier's, the designer enlisted long haired models complete with fish net stockings and guns strapped to thighs for maximum effect. The story was Gaultier's take on a gender bending Bond and his associated wardrobe. Ignoring the ninjas that performed acrobatic distractions, Gaultier presented some well considered ideas. Stretch pants in neoprene and leather quilted jackets showed Gaultier's expertise in production and his ability to work with unconventional fabrics. The tuxedo was of course a central motif to the collection and Gaultier presented it cropped, in quilted leather and worn with hot pants. A theatrical and energetic show, with impressive execution, Gaultier's proves his relevance to contemporary menswear.
