The collection paid homage to the life, style and smoking habits of

late singer Amy Winehouse.

From Amy’s signature beehive hairdo and heavily winged eyeliner

to her eclectic and eccentric mix of floaty silhouettes clinched with rock n roll belts,

  strapped in bustiers to torpedo bras,

there was a hard edged femininity that was offset by Gaultier style androgyny

and buckets full of attitude.

In the finale the models swept past in long, draping black veils,

a bittersweet tribute to a show and a life filled with fun.
