Jean Paul Gaultier seduces and impresses for Fall/Winter 2014 with a sophisticated collection of industrial accessories. For jewelry, he favors heavy metal statement necklaces, slick sculptured chokers, simple drop pendants, and a fantastic assortment of ear cuffs, which are decorated with dewdrop gemstones, chains, and wheel charms. The tin can cuff is a kitschy statement piece, and JPG extracts more potential from the motif by repeating it on evening bags and clutches. For more extravagant evening occasions, there are also chic minaudières covered in flashy bugle beads and pavé crystals. Amid the dozen or so day bags in this collection, a few structured leather totes featuring two-tone paneling and metal plates are particularly enticing, with plenty of style and panache to spare. If you’re on the hunt for a versatile everyday bag, you can’t go wrong with a plain leather tote decorated with a row of tiny studs along the edges. From handsome classics to industrial pieces, Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection provides something for everyone.
