Balmain’s creative director follows in Chitose Abe and Glenn Martens’ footsteps in taking over Jean-Paul Gaultier’s haute couture collection for one season only. His collection is to be unveiled in July 2022.
Out of nearly 1,900 applications, the group selected 20 brands from around the world for the ninth edition of its competition. Eight applicants vying for the €300,000 prize will be selected for the final in March.
Not even a year and a half after Jean Paul Gaultier bid farewell to the catwalks, the house he founded will relaunch into ready-to-wear with a collab collection with five designers including Ottolinger and Palomo Spain.
Spanish designer Alejandro Gómez Palomo has presented his ‘Nuevo Día’ collection with a video set amongst the heliostats of a thermosolar power plant. Inspired by pacifism, Palomo’s bywords are “freedom and comfort.”
