French Dressing

The U.S. exhibition of The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk (currently on display at the Brooklyn Museum) may be coming to an end this weekend, but starting in March, Gaultier enthusiasts can find more of his outré designs in a new collection of furnishings for Roche Bobois. The avant-garde Parisian couturier first partnered with the French furniture brand four years ago to produce a reimagined version of Roche Bobois’s Mah Jong sofa—with silver-screen kiss and black lace fabrics—and rugs in his signature blue-and-white sailor stripes. Many of the designs from that collaboration are part of the current exhibition. The new spring collection (priced from $183) will feature pillows with a cherub print, Louis XVI–style armchairs with hand-applied finishes, and male and female mannequin floor lamps dressed in Gaultier fabric. Several of the new designs likely will be on display later in the spring at the Barbican Art Gallery in London, which will host the Gaultier exhibit from April 9 through August 25.
