Always A Surprise

A conversation with Jean Paul Gaultier

It’s tradition, but not as we know it. Jean Paul Gaultier introduces his Fall/Winter 2015/16 couture collection, Brittany, in the latest episode of Swarovski’s 120th anniversary series of video interviews, and already we know we’re in for a treat. The couture icon’s impish and subversive sense of humor is irresistible.
