May 20, 2022
Jean Paul Gauliter announces a partnership with stylist and creative Lotta Volkova, a key player in Vetements‘ early successas well as Miu Miu and adidas.
Mining the French designer’s archives for inspiration, the stylist came up with a range of corseted lingerie, cone bras included, kinky suiting, and trompe l’oeil dresses.
Volkova retooled JPG’s velvet cone dress (originally unveiled in 1984) into a blush pink mini-dress and bustier, updating the iconic design for 2022. Paying homage to the designer’s penchant for S&M-inspired garb, Volkova also introduced a butt-less skirt, best paired with a matching jacket featuring cut-outs at the breasts.
Volkova also revamped JPG’s jacquard “naked dress” (2004) in jersey, allowing the design to be produced en masse for the very first time.
