Jean Paul Gaultier To Design for Target!

FAME

Does this mean we can expect to see pointy cone-bra corset styles at Target? Mark your fashion calendars: Jean Paul Gaultier is doing a cheap chic collection for Target arriving in stores March 7, 2010. The collection will be available in 250 stores and online through April 11. Gaultier, known for his racy, theatrical, avant-garde styles, was one of the first designers to make lingerie fashionable — he designed the now ubiquitous cone-bra corsets for Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour in the Nineties. Always inspired by the world around him, WWD reports the Gaultier Target collection “pays tribute to the American woman, celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture.” Does that mean current fans Rihanna and Katy Perry, who attended his Paris runway show this month? Gaultier, who’s also the creative director at Hermes and who received the prestigious CFDA International Award in 2000, is the third guest designer in Target’s Designer Collaborations series, following Anna Sui last month and Alexander McQueen last spring. –Kristin Larson

*Hm?* Not quite sure how to react to Rihanna’s top there … perhaps the most suitable word would be, interesting, … maybe or maybe not?

One of my favorite designers; I’m excited to see what wild-child JPG will create for Target that will translate to all kinds of buyers. It will be a great collection.

instead of making such a long list of attributes, you could say that Lady Gaga wears his creations.
