|The Hermes collection by Jean Paul Gaultier for Fall Winter 2009 2010 was inspired by Amelia Earhart.
The luxury of rich materials including leather, furs, suede, cashmere, knits, flannel, satin and other fabrics did its work and the garments presented were warmly approved by the fashion experts.
The color palette was rather dark and restrained to black, fuchsia, grey, violet, and brown.
The Hermes Fall Winter 2009 2010 range included long floor sweeping evening gowns, knitwear, long sheepskin or leather coats with fur trimming, leather military-style raincoats, hooded trench coats, satin or leather trousers, warm vests and gilets, classic ties, bomber jackets, knee-length dresses, overalls, cardigans, long bell-shaped skirts, leather leggings and lots of other items.
Accessories tended to soften some too strict or sharp outfits.
Jean Paul Gaultier began his career in 1970 with an after-school job at Pierre Cardin, and in 1978, he received financial backing to launch his own line. Gaultier has worked extensively with Hollywood and its starlets, from outfitting Madonna in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour to dressing Marion Cotillard in a pailette-encrusted white gown for the 2008 Oscars, where she took home the Best Actress statue for La Vie en Rose. Revered as one of Paris' best-loved couturiers whose audiences are quite literally (and consistently) packed to the rafters, Gaultier remains ardently beloved by the fashion press and his loyal clientele. He is also widely admired for his business acumen, especially with regards to fragrance. Most recently, Mickey Rourke and Kylie Minogue attended his universally-lauded show in July.
