For Supreme‘s continuing Spring/Summer 2019 collaborative releases, the New York-based brand is working with French designer Jean Paul Gaultier and his eponymous label.

Previewed earlier last week, the collection is a showcase of Jean Paul Gaultier’s skillful utilization of tailored haute couture towards street style. Born in 1952 in the suburbs of Paris, Gaultier began his career on his 18th birthday working under Pierre Cardin as an assistant. His career continued under designers Jacques Esterel and Jean Patou in the 1970s before debuting his first collection in 1976.

As collections emerged, his work garnered him the moniker of fashion’s enfant terrible — French for “unruly child” — as his application of fashion incorporated “unconventional materials, sharp tailoring skills, and truly eclectic sensibility,” according to Supreme. Pop-culture-wise, Jean Paul Gaultier’s work was seen as costumes for Madonna’s “Blond Ambition” tour, as well as for the 1997 Luc Besson sci-fi blockbuster The Fifth Element.

Gaultier’s collections commonly reference punk and bondage styles, as well as divergent global communities. The designer divulged his obsessions earlier in an interview with The New Yorker as “flesh, ethnicity, different kinds of global beauty, cinema, my interest with Madonna, tattoos, the Parisienne, the male as object, all that kind of thing.” Gaultier is, to this day, renowned as an originator of modern street style and one of the most influential designers within the fashion industry.

For Spring/Summer 2019, Supreme and Jean Paul Gaultier collaborated on a 17-piece collection. The range includes a Double Breasted Blazer, Cargo Suit Pant, Cargo Suit Vest, Double Breasted Plaid Faux Fur Coat, Reversible Backpack MA-1, Printed Trucker Jacket, Rayon Shirt, Printed Jean, Hooded Sweatshirt, Sweatpant, T-shirt, Schott® Leather Holster, Le Male Fragrance, Belt, and Sunglasses. In addition, two pairs of Vans — a Chukka Pro and Era Pro — will also feature the graphics and designs of Jean Paul Gaultier.

Look for the collection to release on April 11 online and in stores in NY, Brooklyn, LA, London and Paris. Japanese Supreme retail stores will release the collaboration on April 13.
