For his second textile range for Lelièvre, Gaultier unleashes a heady mix of colours, styles and prints
Displaying his usual flair for bold palettes and offbeat designs, Jean Paul Gaultier‘s second fabric collection for Parisian textile house Lelièvre is yet another dazzling display of hot haute couture.
Using everything from photographic images of flower-strewn landscapes digitally printed onto linens to Pop Art-style spots seemingly ‘painted’ onto faux suede, the fashion designer’s sense of play is embraced by the beautifully crafted textiles.
Livingetc particularly loves this Fangio design, a heavy metal fusion of rusted metal, bent chrome fenders and personalised number plates – crushed velvets have got nothing on this!
Available in three colourways (Sanguine, shown on chair; Petrole, swatch; and Terre, seen on thumbnail image) this 100 per cent digitally-printed cotton will add a provocative touch to any modern interior.
For those with more traditional tastes, toiles, jacquard weaves and discreet damasks come in the shape of the effervescently coloured Angelots, Coquin and Casino collections, all priced – as is the rest of the Le Défilé range, from a very reasonable £78 per metre.
Oh, and did we mention what Le Défilé means in French?
It’s a fashion parade… as if you couldn’t guess.
