After tapping (PacoRabanne’s Julien Dossena as the guest creative director for its Fall 2023 couture collection earlier this month, Jean Paul Gaultier is now putting the final touches on a new ready-to-wear line, made in collaboration with London-based brand KNWLS, due out this September.

The collection, which comprises 40 tops, jackets, pants and dresses, finds synergy between the two labels’ design codes, specifically their shared usage of bold prints and punkish themes. The fusion line will officially launch on September 8, following a New York Fashion Week kick-off party, and KNWLS will include several looks from the range in its September runway.

KNWLS, revered for its forward-minded body-con silhouettes featuring experimental textures and strong graphics, was founded in South London in 2017 by Charlotte Knowles and Alexandre Arnault, following their graduation from Central Saint Martins. Notably, Knowles and Arsenault previously worked with Jean Paul Gaultier’s present-day creative director, Florence Tétier, who crafted jewelry for an early-days KNWLS show.

“Their world is really connected to the legacy of Jean Paul Gaultier and it made total sense to give birth to this collection inspired by the very specific vision of the women’s body both brands have,” said Tétier in a statement.

”We wanted to find that world in between that feels very KNWLS and very Jean Paul Gaultier at the same time,”added Arsenault. “It feels like it could be part of the Jean Paul Gaultier archive already — but also the KNWLS archive.”

In more fashion news, Levi’s and Studio Ghibli delivered a thematic Princess Mononoke collection.
