Back in 2014, Jean Paul Gaultier announced that he would no longer design ready-to-wear collections in order to concentrate on creating couture, fragrance and special collaborations. After 38 years of creating over-the-top fashion, his spring 2015 collection— Élection de Miss Jean Paul Gaultier 2015 — was his last, and now it's trickled down to Century 21 for a blowout sale that starts today.
Beginning at noon, you can find the collection at the Lincoln Square location for 69% to 85% off of retail prices. According to WWD, shoppers can expect pieces like leather jackets, gold sleeveless jackets, silk jackets and multicolored pants with sequins, and a hot pink bodysuit with white arrows and stars. There are one-of-a-kind and limited-edition styles (up to ten of a particular item) as well, creating the perfect fashion scenario for a frenzy. (Don't say we didn't warn you.)
The sale goes through Monday, but something is telling us that those limited-edition sale items will be gone in a flash. If you're headed to 1972 Broadway today, let us know in the comments section what you found and how much it was going for.
