Jean Paul Gaultier for Target

According to several websites, Jean Paul Gaultier will be the new designer for Target’s Designer Collaboration line. Gaultier’s people declined to comment, though Target’s people said, “We don’t have anything to share other than we admire his work and incredible design aesthetic.” So it’s still a bit of a mystery if the collaboration will happen or not.

 I think it’s a good idea to introduce Jean Paul Gaultier, who made his most trademark designs in the eighties (corsets, Breton stripes, men’s skirts and Madonna’s cone bra), to a younger audience. For some indication about what to expect, check out his recent collections:

  1. Is it so wrong of me to say I don’t really like it? O.o The idea of normal people walking down the street in that sort of clothing scares me.
