French designer Jean Paul Gaultier evoked a sea journey to Japan at his latest Haute Couture fashion show in Paris. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
A 35-year-old man in Japan has declared his love for a Japanese computer character, Hatsune Miku, in an $ 18,000 wedding ceremony with nearly 40 guests.
Jean Paul Gaultier held court at the French embassy in Tokyo on Wednesday to launch his collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings. The project is Gaultier’s first fashion foray outside couture since he discontinued his own pret-a-porter line last year.
The designer said he was overwhelmed by the work involved in producing luxury ready-to-wear and the need to churn out several collections a year.
“I wanted to concentrate on what I like. What do I like? To make couture. To make pret-a-porter also, but not like the way it is now, because now you have to make pre-collection, cruise, all that, you know, which is a lot a lot of demand. And it doesn’t really stop…which is not good, because we have no time to think,” Gaultier told a press conference. “So I prefer to be free of that, and to make some capsules and some experiences and some new adventures that give me more freedom. And in that way I feel more free and more energetic and a little more excited.”
The line, called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premieres, goes on sale Wednesday online and at Seibu and Sogo department stores and Ito Yokado general stores across Japan.

TOKYO—Jean Paul Gaultier is about to bring some Parisian flair to Japan.
The French designer’s affordably-priced collection for Japanese retail giant Seven & i Holdings will hit the company’s Ito Yokado, Sogo and Seibu stores on Oct. 1. The lineup, which includes striped boatneck jersey tops and a trench coat in a coated fabric, will also be available through a new online portal that will allow customers to pick up their purchases from their local 7-Eleven convenience store.
The Gaultier launch is part of Seven & i Holdings’ broader push into private label clothing and collaborations with big-name designers. The company is launching a new fashion brand called Sept Premières and Gaultier’s designs will comprise a capsule collection within the range called Jean Paul Gaultier for Sept Premières for two seasons. The retailer plans to hire other designers to do future collections for the brand.
Sept. Premières is a French take on the “Seven Premium” brand. Seven & i uses the Seven Premium brand on a whole range of private label goods from rice balls and white bread to underwear and stockings.
“It’s a little more expensive than regular [convenience store] things, but very good,” said Mari Tsutsumi, director and executive officer of original

By Joshua Hunt TOKYO (Reuters) – Messaging app operator Line Corp launched its music streaming service in Japan on Thursday, getting a head start in the virtually untapped business for mobile music subscriptions in the world's second-biggest music market. Line's move marks the most ambitious attempt yet to reverse the declining market for digital music in Japan, where compact discs still account for more than 80 percent of total music sales. Hobbled by rights issues, foreign companies have yet to break into Japan's music streaming business.
