“Jean Paul is the most generous, positive person,” Ditto said about their collaboration, “he truly loves women of all sizes and ages and knows how to make everyone feel gorgeous. I love that this shirt is funny and chic at the same time, like all the best people!”
A trompe-l’oeil visual play, the dress-length, oversized tee features a front and back print of Gaultier’s iconic bullet bra corset, with hands on adjustable corset laces on the back. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Girls Rock Camp Foundation.
“Big girls are beautiful and Beth is super beautiful!” Gaultier stated, “Long live the beauty with shapes, boobs and bottoms. This is a new concept, a loose fit corset. And Beth fits it perfectly”.
What should we be looking forward to style wise in the collection? “current styling with a vintage flair”, as well as “vibrant prints and well-tailored pieces, with silks, rayons and embroidery that are frequently missing from plus-size lines”. Ditto adds: “This line is by us, for us, period. It’s my lifelong dream to get to design real clothes for big people, clothes that are comfortable and cool!”
