Jean Paul Gaultier Fall 2012 Runway

Designer label Jean Paul Gaultier  is launching a new streetwear line for both men and women. The name for the new label has not yet been disclosed, but the collection is set to be unveiled in June 2013.

The move to create a new line follows a new licensing agreement with Italian clothing company Ittierre SpA, who will also produce the label’s menswear line beginning autumn/winter 2013-14. In turn, the designer’s women’s ready-to-wear collections will be manufactured by Gibò SpA, after a deal was made in October.

Ittierre general director Alessandro Locatelli says the streetwear line will reflect Gaultier’s signature “sartorial” style and will be “close to the history of Ittierre and to the consumer”. The manufacturing business has previously produced young collections for brands including Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana, so it seems that Gaultier will be in good hands.
