Jean Paul Gaultier has named Courrèges designer Nicolas Di Felice its next guest couturier.

Di Felice, who has injected new life into Courrèges since becoming creative director in 2020, will become Gaultier’s seventh guest couturier, following Simone Rocha, Rabanne’s Julien Dossena, Haider Ackermann, Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing, Y/Project and Diesel’s Glenn Martens, and Sacai’s Chitose Abe.

“I find Nicolas to be bold and creative from the beginning of his career,” Gaultier told WWD. “Choosing him aligns perfectly with the idea of seeing what a designer can bring to my style.”

“I am grateful to get the chance to work with this legendary couture atelier and I cannot wait to dig into the archives,” Di Felice told the outlet. “Even if I work on some more exceptional pieces for my own show, I mostly try to focus on a certain practicality and wearability at Courrèges, so it’s quite exciting for me to let that go for a bit.”

Di Felice, who studied fashion at La Cambre in Brussels, remembers growing up in Belgium, where real fashion magazines were hard to come by. “Jean Paul was the only figure that was famous in my hometown,” he said. “He was on the television; everybody would use his perfumes. He completely changed fashion and offered it to a wider audience.”

Di Felice will stage his Jean Paul Gaultier collection during Paris Couture Week, which is scheduled to take place between June 24 and 27.
