The Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture show by Olivier Rousteing from Balmain marks the meeting of two of the greatest contemporary fashion designers. A 360-degree view of the creation of this exceptional collection, which will go down in fashion history.

Since Jean Paul Gaultier's last show in 2020, the Haute Couture collections of the House are assigned to a different designer each season. The French fashion house has announced that Olivier Rousteing of Balmain will present the next couture collection in July 2022.

Jean Paul Gaultier and Olivier Rousteing belong to very different generations but share many common inspirations: military style, sailor clothing and a certain taste for flamboyance. It is therefore the reinterpretation of codes that he already knows well that Olivier Rousteing will undertake for the preparation of this fashion show. Follow Olivier Rousteing throughout the creative process: his first sketches, his rediscovery of the Gaultier archives, the first fittings. Finally, you are invited backstage to the catwalk, traditionally set up at the Maison's headquarters on boulevard Saint Martin and at the heart of the VIP entrance. Not to mention an exclusive interview with Jean Paul Gaultier himself, to get his take on the interpretation of his legacy by the talented Olivier Rousteing.
