Jean Paul Gaultier Teams With Samba School for Rio Carnival

COSTUME PARTY: Moving from cabaret to carnival, Jean Paul Gaultier has partnered with leading samba school Grêmio Recreativo Escola de Samba Portela for the 2019 edition of the Rio Carnival in Brazil.
On March 4 at the city’s Sambadrome stadium, the school is to parade seven floats themed around the story of the late Brazilian samba singer Clara Nunes.
All of the troupe’s dancers will sport costumes designed by the couturier, working alongside iconic carnival designer Rosa Magalhães, Portela’s artistic director, and themed around the eagle, the school’s symbol. The traditional carnival costume is based on a lavish plumed headdress and heels.
Gaultier, who in September opened his “Fashion Freak Show” revue at the Folies Bergère in Paris, traveled to Rio de Janeiro last month to visit Portela’s hangarlike base in the city’s north, meet with Magalhães and learn about the history of the school. Founded in 1923, Portela is the biggest title holder of the Rio Carnival, having won 22 championships.

Amanda Lear Would Do Anything Jean Paul Gaultier Asks

On and off the runway, the cast and crew of Jean Paul Gaultier’s upcoming revue “Fashion Freak Show” had turned out in full force for his smoking hot, in all senses, fall couture show. Actress and scriptwriter Tonie Marshall, the revue’s codirector, sat alongside former cabaret star and “queen of the night” Régine.
“I’d do anything Jean Paul asks,” said Amanda Lear, having done his previous revue in Berlin three years ago. “We’ve been talking about it for a while.” The singer and veteran model recently lent her voice to Edna Mode in the sequel to Disney’s animated movie “The Incredibles 2,” which was released in France earlier that day.
Visual artists Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard, best known as Pierre et Gilles, were taking in the brouhaha as Naomi Campbell took her seat under the snap of a thousand smartphones — and no shortage of professional lenses either. “There are thousands of images today, and I love it. You get to step into a person’s universe,” said Blanchard.
The artists, whose contribution to the upcoming Folies Bergères production includes an image symbolizing the love between Gaultier and his late partner Francis Menuge, are exhibiting a series of works on the religious in

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Spring 2018

Jean Paul Gaultier’s tailoring skill has often earned him comparisons with Yves Saint Laurent, but there’s another famous couturier to whom he owes a big debt.
The former enfant terrible of French fashion dedicated his spring haute couture collection to his former mentor Pierre Cardin. Flanked by Maryse Gaspard, his glamorous muse and head of haute couture, the 95-year-old was swarmed by television cameras as he arrived at the show.
Gaultier, whose first job was as Cardin’s studio assistant, noted the Space Age designer has broken every rule in the book. “Cardin was always free and he has remained a free man who does what he pleases,” he said.
Thus inspired, Gaultier put on a soundtrack of jangly pop and loopy space tunes, and set off on a trip to the Swinging Sixties, with outfits named Twiggy Pop, Yellow Submarine or Cardinella.
He had clearly been boning up on the Cardin monograph published by Assouline last fall. Though the references weren’t overt — no Bubble dresses or A-line minis — his influence could be felt in monochrome outfits sliced to produce kinetic effects, and sharp-shouldered belted jackets with exaggerated peplums.
Above all, Gaultier appeared to share the veteran designer’s love of fringe. Whereas Cardin is

Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2017

Christmas carols in July? Perhaps it was Jean Paul Gaultier’s attempt at mind over matter. As temperatures in Paris soared, the designer conjured a snowscape with a fall collection inspired by ski resorts.
While guests fanned themselves, models paraded in oversize ski sweaters, cropped down vests and velvet ski pants. The outfits bore witty names such as Santa Clothes, Anna Winter and Be Polaire, while the soundtrack veered from crystalline Björk tunes to that Mariah Carey song.
Gaultier admitted his theme was somewhat ironic, given the summer shows at his Paris headquarters are famously sweltering affairs. “We don’t have built-in air conditioning and we do suffer, because I’m on the seventh floor, so when we do fittings, people pass out,” he said backstage.
It must have made for some backstage catfight this season, as his collection spanned from lushly textured outerwear to diaphanous dresses inspired by saris — the designer’s reasoning being that it snows in India, too.
In the first camp, a sheared black rabbit fur jacket glistening with jet beads, a beaded cream Aran sweater lined with mink, or a quilted velvet coat with kimono sleeves. Among the exotic-flavored options were a red crepe dress with an asymmetric cowl, or a super chic

Front Row at Jean Paul Gaultier Couture Fall 2017

FIRST LADIES OF FASHION: Carla Bruni is steaming ahead with her singing career.
“My new album is out in the fall, it’s a selection of covers, in English,” she said before taking her seat at the Jean Paul Gaultier couture show next to Farida Khelfa.
She had previewed some of the songs at Monday night’s annual amfAR charity dinner, where she sang Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” and the Rolling Stones’ “Miss You.”
Other front-row faces included American actor Ian Bohen, Franco-Indonesian singer Anggun, Amanda Lear and Josiane Balasko.
“When I represented France for Eurovision, I said I wished Jean Paul Gaultier would dress me. The next day, I got a call,” Anggun reminisced, noting hat she was leaving for Asia to be one of the judges on the second season of “Asia’s Got Talent,” beginning at the end of July. “It’s watched by something like 500 million viewers,” she marveled.
Blanca Li, sitting next to compatriot Rossy de Palma, was preparing a new choreography set to debut in September at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris. “It’s with 14 dancers, it’s called ‘Solstice,’ it’s about the relation of human and nature,” she said.
Observers shouldn’t expect extravagant costumes for the show, however. “I’m not working

Jean Paul Gaultier Turns Guest Editor of French TV Guide

GOGGLEBOX: “TV turned me into who I am,” Jean Paul Gaultier declared in an interview with French TV magazine Télécâble Sat Hebdo, which made him guest editor of its latest issue.
It’s timed to coincide with the screening of the documentary “Jean Paul Gaultier Voyage” (“Jean Paul Gaultier Travels” in English) on cable channel Paris Première on April 19. Director Emmanuel Le Ber followed the designer on a trip to Argentina, Mexico and Brazil last year to launch his fragrances in those markets.
Shoving vanity aside, Gaultier gleefully defaced his photograph on the cover of the magazine, adding touches like hand-drawn red nails, red lips, blue eyes and forehead wrinkles, which he said looked like the stripes on his signature sailor tops.

In a filmed extract of the interview, Gaultier confessed to being a TV addict. “I sometimes cancel professional commitments to watch certain things on TV,” he said. “I mostly watch things that are liable to inspire me.”
Indeed, Gaultier featured French reality television star Nabilla Benattia, dressed in a va-va-voom black bustier gown, in his fall 2013 haute couture show, and bearded drag performer Conchita Wurst, winner of the 2014 “Eurovision” song contest, was the star of his fall

Gaultier Hits Tokyo to Launch Japan Apparel Collection

Jean Paul Gaultier held court at the French embassy in Tokyo on Wednesday to launch his collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings. The project is Gaultier’s first fashion foray outside couture since he discontinued his own pret-a-porter line last year.
The designer said he was overwhelmed by the work involved in producing luxury ready-to-wear and the need to churn out several collections a year.
“I wanted to concentrate on what I like. What do I like? To make couture. To make pret-a-porter also, but not like the way it is now, because now you have to make pre-collection, cruise, all that, you know, which is a lot a lot of demand. And it doesn’t really stop…which is not good, because we have no time to think,” Gaultier told a press conference. “So I prefer to be free of that, and to make some capsules and some experiences and some new adventures that give me more freedom. And in that way I feel more free and more energetic and a little more excited.”
The line, called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premieres, goes on sale Wednesday online and at Seibu and Sogo department stores and Ito Yokado general stores across Japan.
