Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2020 couture collection, held at the Théâtre du Châtelet, celebrated his career and brought together models, friends and muses to present more than 230 outfits made from the recycled materials of older collections.

Touching on his vision for the collection in a backstage interview with WWD, Gaultier said, “I was thinking there are too many clothes, so maybe recycle it. Rather than burning them, or something like that, you can make something else. It’s part of my education because of flea markets, things like that. So for me it was an adventure and I was in reality very excited to see what I should do.”

The catwalk included Dita Von Teese in a nude satin belted corset; Rossy de Palma in a short black bustier dress and mantilla; Gigi Hadid in a barely there sailor top and pleated white pants and more stars.
