JEAN PAUL GAULTIER & TWELV MAG

We recently spoke to Twelv magazine who showed us their new film “A Woman Is A Gentleman.”  Twelv have collaborated with Jean Paul Gaultier and created a mysterious fashion short. Editor in chief, Hissa Igarashi creatively directs the theme of “transformation” which is shot by cinematographer Maria Cabra.

The film is evidently inspired by Jean Luc Godard’s 1961 film A Woman is a Woman. Model, Marine Hein, transforms from the sweet ingénue she is to please everyone to the passionate femme fatale to please herself. Covered in Jean Paul Gaultier’s CLASSIQUE Eau de Parfume, lingerie, trench coat, heels and Lacrasia gloves, she embarks for an evening in New York.


The soundtrack is memorable as Brooklyn band Motive adds to the seductive mise-en-scène with a cover of the new wave classic “Psycho Killer” by Talking Heads. These four former jazz musicians united in New York to record their radio echo style rock and roll. TWELV’s FW 2012 issues features the band suited up with some leggy lasses for a slick editorial.

TWELV magazine’s first issue’s theme of “love” inspired editor-in-chief Hissa Igarashi to create an Alexander McQueen-like dress fashioned out of gummy bears. The upcoming issue will feature a new dramatic dress as well as other head turning creations. We previously included a piece in May on Twelv’s first issue featuring Mischa Barton.
