Jean-Paul Gaultier seems to be enjoying getting his collab on lately, but that's pretty good news for us because he's not bad at it, and he certainly seems to be having fun with them. On his collaboration with Levi's, he was quoted saying, "Levi's is the American Dream, it's a myth, it is the original jeans." For his version of the "American Dream," Gaultier gave the line a punky wash by adding criss-crossing bondage-strap details with red topstitching to otherwise classic jeans and a denim jacket. We particularly like the striped underside, which may make it OK to roll jeans again.
