Paris: For fall, Jean Paul Gaultier presented a kitschy take on space travel, complete with an elaborate set and a diverse cast of models. High-tech materials were a key element of the collection, as were futuristic, cocoon-like silhouettes. Gaultier couldn’t help but add in some punk references to give the offering an edge. –Joanna Manganaro
