Jean Paul Gaultier Launches Streetwear Line
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER is launching a streetwear line for both men and women, to be unveiled in June next year. A name for the new label has not yet been disclosed.
The move follows a new licensing agreement with Italian clothing company Ittierre SpA, who will also produce the label's menswear line - commencing autumn/winter 2013-14. The designer's women's ready-to-wear collections will be manufactured by Gibò SpA, after a deal was made in October, WWD reports.
The streetwear line will reflect Gaultier's signature "sartorial" style and will be "close to the history of Ittierre and to the consumer", said Ittierre general director Alessandro Locatelli. The manufacturing business has previously produced young collections for brands including Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana.
