(NEW YORK) Jean Paul Gaultier split from longtime distributor and manufacturer Aeffe SpA, which has produced and dispersed his collections since the mid-nineties. In a statement released today, Gaultier thanked Aeffe for "a long and fruitful partnership"; Aeffe wished Gaultier "all the best for the future." Jean Paul Gaultier is expected to sign with apparel manufacturer Gibò, whose parent company Onward Kashiyama Co. Ltd. acquired Jil Sander in 2008.
Other Aeffe production partnerships include Moschino, Pollini, Cédric Charlier, Alberta Ferretti, and most recently, Emanuel Ungaro. Emanuel Ungaro signed a license deal with Aeffe in late September after suffering years of losses and management changes.
