Lelièvre and Jean Paul Gaultier brought together their know-how and creativity to launch a new license in the world of decoration and furnishing textiles. Haute Couture and Home Interior Furnishing fabrics have combined their excellence and it is with success that the style teams of Maisons Lelièvre and Jean Paul Gaultier have transposed the world of the designer to the world of decoration. “This collaboration with Jean Paul Gaultier aims to awaken the world of furnishing and decoration by bringing creativity previously reserved for haute couture ” according to Emmanuel Lelièvre, Managing Director.
The Jean Paul Gaultier collections by Lelièvre juggles creatively and shifted with all its codes. A proposal of eight textile creations that come in turn in soft, luminous or tonic tones according to the seasons. The year of the Dragon highlights the magnificent interpretation of the signature drawings of Jean Paul Gaultier, the Tartan plays the tonic classics on velvet. Cabaret brings, in the blink of an eye, the sewing and feminine touch of a reinterpreted fishnet. Having always allied tradition and modernity, it is therefore quite natural that the company turned to Jean Paul Gaultier for this new line.
In the Nature et Découverte Jean Paul Gaultier after collections inspired by couture fashion shows, then the melting pot culture of cities, Jean Paul Gaultier now lets us discover his visions of nature – alternative, inverted, oxidised but extremely pure. Notable examples from these collections include Oxydation with a soft all-purpose faux suede contrasting with a design based on oxidised metal, used in decoration and accessories by Jean Paul Gaultier. Zen presents a cotton velvet is perfect for upholstery with its simple design geometric design. Azulejos is inspired by the traditional fresh patterns of the painted and tichly patterned tiles from Spain and Portugal, to be transformed onto this supple jacquard fabric for upholstery or beautiful curtains. Biarritz presents a measured and versatile jacquard fabric with a checkerboard design, also suitable for light upholstery and curtains.
For his third collection Paris So Metis Jean Paul Gaultier crosses genres with boundless fantasy. The city blends with street art for a new urban exoticism. Indigo denim sits alongside the ochre shades of Africa. Black and white provide a link to previous collections for a glorious melting pot. Notably exquisite patterns include the Metisse where the Meltingpot design is transformed into an expanded graphic fabric. A supple jacquard. The Meltingpot was an African inspiration, an African boubou design, that was totally reconstructed for a “Couture” version.
Jean Paul Gaultier’s second collection of interior decoration textiles was inspired from the Haute Couture catwalk where creativity is unleashed in a heady mix of genres, colour tints, signature designs and scale drawings.
The latest collection of this wonderful collaboration is entitled Voyages Voyages and brings together, sometimes matches, always intertwines, parts of lives and dreams.
