paris - really...no, really? yes, really. jean paul gaultier is debuting a line for children. it doesn't make fashion sense to me at all, but i'm sure the bottom line is that it makes dollars and cents - or more to the point: euros and cents. according to wwd.com, the legendary designer will debut a collection of 120 pieces for boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 14 this january. the zannier group of france, which already produces and distributes kids clothes for venerable brands like marc jacobs and kenzo, holds the license for gaultier's kids collection....so now comes the most obvious question: i get that you would wear gaultier, but would you splurge on it for your kids? personally, mine will have to make do with the gap until they are old enough to understand the concept of investment pieces.
