Jean Paul Gaultier is doing a Target collection, reports The Cut
. The over-the-top designer's collection will be available at more than 250 Target stores across the country and Target.com on March 7 through April 11.
Following Alexander McQueen
and Anna Sui
, Gaultier is the third established designer to do a collection for the mass retailer under the Designer Collaboration series. His chosen muse? The American woman, "celebrating the forces of style both past and present in American pop culture," a Target spokesperson says.
I remember being thrilled by Gautier's risque designs as a young girl (Madonna's cone-bra corset comes to mind). My mother's dislike of his iconic female
perfume bottles only made me want them more; both still sit prominently displayed in my glass bathroom cabinet. This Frenchman holds a special place in my heart so I look forward to what he'll bring to Target audiences.
