DUAL GENDER: Jean Paul Gaultier is going co-ed again during couture — and forgoing the runway during the Paris men’s wear shows later this month. French fashion’s original enfant terrible, who paraded high fashions for men alongside his fall 2011 couture, plans to repeat the spectacle here come July 4. Gaultier had been on the provisional calendar to stage a men’s show on June 28 at 5 p.m.
Instead, the designer is plotting an all-day presentation of his spring 2013 men’s ready-to-wear at his Paris showrooms on the Rue Saint-Martin, a Gaultier spokeswoman said. The exact format has yet to be finalized. Gaultier included men’s wear on the runway when he launched his couture house in 1997.
