As Ferocia’s told you a million times before, we do a lot of squealing in the Fashion & Beauty department. Today’s squeal of enthusiasm and unparalleled excitement is brought to you by the latest retail giant/designer collaboration: Jean Paul Gaultier!!! This, glamazons, is a HUGE deal.
Jean Paul Gaultier needs no introduction but here’s some brief background info: The French designer’s innovative, dramatic designs catapulted him from designing for his mother and grandmother to fashion royalty. Some of his most famous creations include corsets for men in 1997 and the lingerie-over-your-clothes trend which Madonna brought to the mainstream in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour.
Gaultier often credits the street fashions of the youth in London and New York as the inspiration behind his edgy designs. His muse for the Target collection? “Jean Paul Gaultier for Target pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture,” the retailer said.
I’m dying. If Madonna or even Rihanna are the “forces of style” behind these designs, Gaultier will surely deliver a collection that is everything. Here are the deets:
Jean Paul Gaultier for Target will hit 250 Target stores and Target.com on March 7. It will be available through April 11.
