Jean Paul Gaultier has been inviting the next generation of visionary designers to give their take on the iconic French brand. Earlier this year, five designers including Ottolinger were chosen to re-introduce ready-to-wear at the brand. Then, in July, Chitose Abe of sacai unveiled their long overdue Jean Paul Gaultier couture collection. The brand announced today that Glenn Martens' Y/PROJECT will be the next in line to interpret the JPG house codes for a new era. Taking into account Martens' skill for cleverly twisting wardrobe staples, we reckon he'll be a dab hand at reinventing the Gaultier world.
