Jean Paul Gaultier and Supreme Drop a Surprise Collaboration

Supreme is set to release a collaborative collection with Jean Paul Gaultier on Thursday the 11th of April. The spring-summer ‘19 collection welcomes Gaultier back to the ready-to-wear scene!

Collaborative collections are standard practice for Supreme, but nobody was expecting Jean Paul Gaultier to enter the mix. Gaultier has been on a ready-to-wear hiatus since 2014, when he became disillusioned with the saturated luxury market and decided to dedicate his efforts to haute couture. We saw some eyebrows being raised at the announcement, but Gaultier is no stranger to streetwear.

Punk Inspired Streetwear

It’s no secret that Gaultier’s work is largely inspired by the punk subculture and bondage styles. This streetwear collection is no exception, although this lookbook features less flesh and unsurprisingly, a lack of corsets. A pair of jeans showing a hard-looking face emblazoned on them set the mood for the collection. They’re complete with graphic text, unapologetically showing racism the door.

The collaboration’s grid-patterned faux fur coats make it on to our shortlist. They add a punk-chic finish to the casual, street-ready looks. We’ve been eager to discover more colorful coat options for the spring season so we’re not disappointed! 

The collection introduces a gothic remix of Vans footwear to complete the floral tracksuit looks. Snagging a pair from Thursday’s release will require a lot of luck. Don’t get your hopes up! 

Fashion’s Enf(a)nt Terrible

We’re slightly biased towards Gaultier since he rightfully claimed the title of fashion’s enfant terrible. This captures his eclectic design approach, adventurous use of materials and sharp tailoring. The French designer is said to be one of the founding fathers of modern streetwear. So, Supreme couldn’t wait to get the ball rolling.

We’re excited to see JPG take a breather from couture and to witness how streetwear fanatics will make the collection their own. 

The collection drops on the 11th of April. It’s available online and at Supreme stores in London, New York, Los Angeles and Paris.
