When Target announced it’s next big fashion collaborator was Jean Paul Gaultier – I was a little unsure of this coupling.
Target to me is family friendly fashion, hardwearing, on trend & affordable.
Visions of Madonna’s cone bra & muscle bound tattooed sailors were not items I thought would go hand in hand with the Target range. But I was wrong. To a degree!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the Target images of the instantly recognisable style of JPG, the tulle skirts, satin bralets & sailor tattoo inspired prints & thought, that’s just not for me. And these sort of one off pieces are a massive part of the range & I guess we’d all be a little disappointed if the genius of JPG thought Australian fashion couldn’t cope with his idea of style.
Those pieces are fab. But not for me.
So I ventured into my local Target store & checked out the women’s wear on offer from Jean Paul Gaultier & I’ve gathered a few pieces I think we could all use in our wardrobes, while still proudly bearing that Jean Paul Gaultier label.
Ok, so maybe I’m not brave enough to wear those heels, but I’m hoping you are!
My absolute fave piece was the Tuxedo Jacket. It’s a gorgeous fabric & the cut is really flattering.
Unfortunately the pants that matched the jacket did not fit me at all, but the skirt is a gorgeous alterative if you like the idea of a matching suit.
The scarf is an easy way to incorporate some of that famous JPG tattoo print into your look without going over the top & the Bandana print pants are totally fun! Mix them with a plain black or white top statement heels or sneakers for versatility.
Who doesn’t need a white shirt, tucked in or out, sexy or plain man-style cool.
Stripes & Boyfriend jeans are wardrobe must haves & bearing that JPG label making them even more covetable!
The Jean Paul Gaultier range for Target also includes Menswear, Kids clothing & home wears.
What do you think about this range? Have you been into target to check it out? You can see a fun video of me in store here.
