Chitose Abe to Design Next Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Collection
The next phase of Jean Paul Gaultier couture has been revealed: each season, a designer will be invited to interpret the codes of the house. First up is Chitose Abe of Sacai, who will present a couture collection in July 2020. “The idea of different designers interpreting one Haute Couture brand came to me in the nineties for a Parisian Haute Couture House who found itself without a designer,” Gaultier explained. “This concept will become reality now with Chitose Abe of Sacai as the first guest designer. I admire her work, we have many things in common creatively and a similar vision of fashion. I am glad to give her the complete freedom.”
Abe adds: “I have a long held admiration for Jean Paul’s unique vision of subversive femininity and his originality, both of which I’ve strived towards in my work since the beginning. It’s a true honor to be given the opportunity to be custodian of his house as the first designer of this project.”
Look at these two cuties!
