Jean Paul Gaultier has announced that he is planning to launch a streetwear clothing line in Spring 2014. The French haute couture designer is apparently still going through the details of a five year contract with licensing company Ittierre SpA, and further details are limited, although reportedly there will be both a women’s and men’s line. Although it is of course cool to see Gaultier branching out into a more ‘street’ line of craft, it once agin poses that question; “what is streetwear?”. Certainly not what it once was, that’s for sure, as we’ve seen time and time again particularly over the last year or two with high-fashion designers appropriating streetwear styles for a higher end market. We’ll keep you posted with updates on this! (via HUH)
