Gaultier and Dossena had met only once, briefly, during a photo shoot a few years ago. This is the first time that Dossena, who since 2013 has been in charge of style at Paco Rabanne – a label owned by the Puigenfant terrible‘, exited in 2020.

Gaultier sold his label to Catalan group Puig in 2011 and stopped producing ready-to-wear collections in 2015. He brought his career to an end with a last haute couture collection presented in January 2020, in a memorable show at the Châtelet theatre in Paris.

Since then, the label led by Antoine Gagey has reintroduced ready-to-wear fashion, launching a sailor-themed collection in 2021, created in collaboration with five emerging designers. Jean Paul Gaultier then revamped its e-tail site, and has relaunched its haute couture collections by asking young, well-known guest designers to reinterpret the label’s codes.
