Carbon Footprint

Jean Paul Gaultier is doing his part to make the earth a better place by teaming up with Brazilian shoe company Melissa to create an eco-friendly shoe. The 10 cm stiletto, which will come in black, caramel, tangerine, lime and beige is 100% recyclable and will be hitting shelves in June, just in time for summer!

It’s simple, chic and we can’t forget expensive. The plastic heels will cost around $320. Yikes. No one said being eco-friendly was cheap.

And between this, the French designer’s upcoming Target collection and his collaboration with Pataugas Shoes, our wardrobes are about to get one big designer upgrade.

Cost: $320+

Tarjay is Haute

The designer collaborations with Target always create a whole lot of buzz. And when it was announced that Jean-Paul Gaultier would be doing a special collection for the big-box retailer, squeals of delight were heard round the world.

Gaultier has always been known for his sort of rock-and-roll, street-wear aesthetic and approach to clothing. And it looks like he is bringing those influences to this more affordable line.

Above are a few preview images of what you can expect in stores.

That tattoo pattern seems to be prevalent in the collection. It comes on a long-sleeved tee, a pair of mesh leggings and even a dress (not pictured). Other pieces include a cropped leather jacket, sweet green polka-dot dress, a few vests and even a khaki trench. I’m really loving the pretty yellow dress which will retail for $59.99. Can’t wait for Tarjay Haute Couture!
