Remember in October when we announced the coming of Jean Paul Gaultier’s line for Target
? Well, the lookbook has hit the web and though I’m still partial to Zac Posen’s line
, there’s something about these edgy designs that blows my mind. In true Jean Paul Gaultier fashion, the affordable pieces blend high fashion and street culture seamlessly.
Even the more classic looks, like that amazing trench coat, have a chic, urban edge that make them utterly cool. And when it’s time to strut down the catwalk, like Jourdan Dunn in the amazing Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 look, turn to show-stopping pieces like a pair of tattooed tights and tanks with eye-popping graphics (Yes, literally. An eye graces the front of the shirt).
The tattoo prints aren’t my favorite and can easily go ugg when worn the wrong way (Ex: Ed Hardy
) but I’m in love with the fit of that red and white printed belted sheath with a nautical neckline. The look is so trendy but the silhouette is timeless. Perfect match. AND the tough-luxe combo of the floral dress and white studded belt is just calling my name!
Check out images from the Lookbook and tell me what you’ve got your eye on when the pieces, which retail from $18-$200, hit stores on March 7th.
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.
