The Beth Ditto moniker has long been an associate of the fashion industry, from a hook up with Christopher Kane for ‘Fashion Rocks’ in 2007 to her recent turns in front of the camera for Alexander Wang and on the Marc Jacobs’ SS16 catwalk; the gal has got it down.
And now she’s gone and announced a not-completely-surprising collection with fashion’s Enfant Terrible, Jean Paul Gaultier (she walked in his SS11 show, he made her wedding dress).
“Jean Paul is the most generous, positive person, he truly loves women of all sizes ad ages and knows how to make everyone feel gorgeous,” the Gossip frontwoman announced of the pair’s forthcoming plus size collection.
Set to launch in February and said to be inspired by vintage pieces (think silks, custom prints and embroidery), a new JPG-does-Madonna alike T-shirt, pictured above, goes on sale today to soothe suspense (with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Girls Rock Camp Foundation), while those who picked up her Evans collab back in 2009 would do well to dust off the cobwebs.
“Big girls are beautiful and Beth is super beautiful! Long live the beauty with shapes, boobs and bottoms,” the designer adds of his new creative partner. “This is a new concept, a loose fit corset. And Beth fits it perfectly.”
