Jean Paul Gaultier to launch new streetwear line

Gaultier, the enfant terrible of the fashion world, is to launch a younger line for men and women in 2014.

French designer Jean Paul Gaultier is set to add a streetwear branch to his fashion empire, which already features ready-to-wear, haute couture, fragrance and kidswear.

The name of the line is yet to be revealed, but WWD have broken the news that the range will express Gaultier's signature sartorial style and be launched in 2014.

The deal sees the French fashion house team up with Italian manufacturer Ittierre SpA, who call Gaultier one of the "most relevant fashion designers ever, with a global appeal."

60-year-old Gaultier's flamboyant catwalk collections are one of the highlights of Paris Fashion Week; his spring/summer 2013 show was an homage to the pop stars of the Eighties - with Madonna, Boy George and David Bowie lookalikes stalking the catwalk, while his Amy Winehouse-inspired collection for last summer's haute couture range grabbed headlines worldwide.

Gaultier's latest design foray can be enjoyed for under £1: bottles of Diet Coke adorned with his beloved Breton stripe are currently on sale.

Karl Lagerfeld has embarked on yet another collaboration, this time with plastic footwear brand Melissa.

The eco-friendly Brazilian label has already enjoyed successful tie-ups with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Jason Wu, Gareth Pugh, Liberty London, Pedro Laurenco and Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio, but believe Lagerfeld is their most exciting yet.

"We are very excited about the partnership with Melissa who have been great in translating Karl's inspirations and designs into truly ironic fun fashion products that many women in the world will happily wear," added the CEO of Lagerfeld, Pier Paolo Righi.
