gaultier-2010.jpgGood old Jean-Paul. We can rely on him to bring a touch of the bizarre to the catwalk, which frankly is what it needs at the moment, So much of A/W 2010's look book is dominated by sober, businesslike chic that it's good to see the line between genius and madness stretched a little thinner.

I certainly wouldn't call these shoes attractive, however. While this type of runway footwear is not likely to be appearing on the high street any time soon, it's certainly a barometer of what will inspire. And if this collection is anything to go by we can expect to be seeing alien chic, jutting toes and styles to make every shoe look too big for the wearer's feet. Formidable...
