The avant-garde fashion designer makes a strong case for dramatic decor.
Prolific fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier has never been a fan of convention. He’s proven his genius time and time again, from playing with gendered clothing and bringing the “man-skirt” back into fashion, to working with models deemed unconventional by the industry. While his fearless designs and aesthetic make perfect sense for high-fashion, you’d think they might be more challenging to .
The French fashion powerhouse is hardly new to the home decor scene. In 2010 he worked alongside Roche Bobois to transform his iconic Madonna cone bra, among other designs, into furniture and textiles that were eventually shown in a retrospective about him at the Brooklyn Museum.
Then, in 2012 he collaborated with French textile house, Lelièvre Paris, on a line of fabrics. While this collection was geared more toward industry insiders, his new wall-coverings — also developed in partnership with Lelièvre — are the perfect way for fashion lovers to deep-dive into the world of interior design.
“Wallpaper is both traditional and innovative at the same time,” Gautier said in a statement. “We know that [it has] the same level of craftsmanship as we have in our haute couture fashion!”
The range is equally as fun and experimental as Gautier’s clothing designs — because they’re directly inspired by them. Adorned in metallic flecks, graphic stripes, and florals covered in glitter, Gautier has drawn inspiration from some of his most iconic designs. Scroll on to get a closer look of the collection, which is available now at lelievreparis.com.
