Pejic walked in Jean Paul Gaultier’s fall 2012 men’s runway show last week and was subsequently the subject of a story on a French TV news channel, which followed the model on fittings and rehearsals. Frockwriter caught the broadcast, in which Pejic revealed some interesting tidbits.
One was that he’s been booked for the Paris haute couture shows–Jean Paul Gaultier, for whom he walked last year–is a likely candidate. The second was that “He will sign, in several weeks, his first contract to lend his image to a major perfume brand”.
Since he’s developed a relationship with Gaultier over the past year and a half (a working one–though the above photograph, which sees Gaultier feeling up Pejic as Pejic’s hat levitates, might suggest otherwise) walking in his fall 2011 menswear and spring 2011 couture shows and starring alongside (and kissing) Karolina Kurkova in his spring 2011 ad campaign, Frockwriter speculates that the contract is with him.
It would certainly be interesting–Gaultier’s fragrance bottles are in the shapes of torsos that correspond to the sex of the fragrance. So, which one will Pejic front? Both? Or, will it be Gaultier’s unisex fragrance Gaultier 2, which, from what we can determine, has never had a proper campaign star?
And if we’re going by labels Pejic has fronted in the past–could Marc Jacobs be a possibility? He starred in the spring 2011 campaign for Marc by Marc. Could he replace Marc himself as the face of Bang or Dakota Fanning for Lola? We can’t wait to find out.
