This just in from WWD: Jean Paul Gaultier is following in the steps of Peter Som, and launching a line of children's clothing. He's just signed a licensing agreement with Zannier, and the first of the line should come out in time for Fall 09. Best part? He may be calling this "children's", but the clothes will be for kids up to the age of 14, so fashionable eighth graders everywhere can get their correctly-fitting Gaultier to show off before phys-ed. That is, of course, if 14-year olds can shell out cash in the high hundreds for clothes.
Jean Paul Gaultier Designed a Bar of Gold
In these unstable financial times, experts say that investing in gold may be your safest bet. That's good news for Jean Paul Gaultier, who recently designed a one-off gold bar for French gold investment company CPoR Devises, WWD reports. The gold bar, which unsurprisingly bares a heart and JPG logo, will go up for sale on the open market this Friday, October 14.
