'90s and Y2K trends continue to reign in today's fashion climate, with the likes of Glenn Martens' Diesel, Martine Rose, Balenciaga and many more delivering fits inspired by the yesteryears. Now, it's the turn of Jean Paul Gaultier, a brand that dominated the '90s and noughties. In recent times, JPG has uncovered its archive and offered it up for rent, tapped Martens for a co-designed collection, and collaborated with Lil Nas X on an apt "Montero" top that was limited to 666 pieces, each combining the musician's aesthetic with the brand's own love for iconography and bold graphics.
For its latest retro revival moment, Jean Paul Gaultier has launched the "Iconic Print" series. Here, the brand serves various inclusive garments that are decorated with either the "Cartouche," "Banknote," "Palm Tree" or "Multi" prints, with the latter combining the former three together.
Offering tops, sarongs, pants, dresses, boleros and more, the collection's pieces span everything from skintight stretch coverings to flowy, billowing looks perfect for the summer. Further enhancing this are the prints themselves, which combine typically overt Jean Paul Gaultier branding with hyperrealistic photographic prints, otherworldly baroque detailing, and a helping hand of beach club glamour.
Perfect by themselves or paired as a twinset -- matching or mashed -- the Jean Paul Gaultier "Iconic Print" collection can be seen above and bought online now. Prices range between €140 EUR and €590 EUR (approx. $147 -- $620 USD).
