The enfant terrible of French fashion, Jean Paul Gaultier, presented a collection that seemed very classic, deceptively so, at first glance. But an anarchic spirit dwelled beneath the fedoras and fur collars, with gonzo individualism in disguise. Memorable looks included a brick-printed pantsuit, tattoo-patterned knits and an outlandish orange cape. Still, a small element of that orange palette goes a long way: as seen here, paired with sane separates, it's a clever, postmodern take on the vintage dandy.
