Bonnes nouvelles! Jean Paul Gaultier is launching a babywear collection, Gaultier Bebe, for newborns and other petits up to two years old. The collection hits stores later this month and features knit dungarees, sailor shirts and bodysuits in Gaultier's signature red, white and blue. And just because, let's pay tribute to JPG with some of his pearls of genius. Enjoy! 

"Phtt! 'enfant terrible'.. you know, it's like grey hair... I'm a little bit fatty..." -on being called the enfant terrible of the fashion world.

"Do you know that cats can't wear corsets? They can't stand! Not at all! They just fall over. I know because I tried!"

"Elegance is a question of personality, more than one's clothing." 

"I am 1952. I masticate. I am like a big stomach."

"(It's) like a Parisian punkette. You know, originally the punk (were) English so it's the French version of punk which means a kind of bourgeois. A little chic elegant and (some kind of) accident (can) happen."

"People think that everyone wears black in France; in fact they all wear grey."

"I am obsessed with American TV and movies. It’s the reason I am a designer.”

"I think she's talented and very inpolitically incorrect, which I love. But I also think that she read up on Madonna's life and learnt it like the Bible." -on Lady Gaga
