GAULTIER FASHION

THE cube-shaped ticket sent out by Jean-Paul Gaultier for his show on Friday night should have been a clue that the designer has developed square eyes from watching and presenting too much `Eurotrash', writes Tamsin Blanchard. Guests were seated on polystyrene cubes; video screens relayed American model Amber Valetta stating "my head is a cube". Then out came the clothes, a whole series of building-brick-cubist rubber dresses in bright blocks of colour, followed by kitsch Sixties print coats and trouser suits. The show was held at the icy, disused Paris railway shed that designers had been opting for last week.
