Gaultier to launch children's couture collection

Jean Paul Gaultier is to add to his children's clothing line by designing a more luxurious couture range.

The high-end line will be released for spring/summer 2014 and has been inspired by the dresses from his main spring/summer couture 2013 collection.

The collection, Junior Gaultier Couture, will comprise of 90 designs aimed for children between the ages of 4 and 14 years. Each piece will retail at approximately $1,200 and will go on sale later this year.
