The s/s 2015 show at Paris Fashion Week will be the final Jean Paul Gaultier ready-to-wear collection, it has been reported.

The designer will instead concentrate on the couture line, the brand’s fragrances and other projects, like designing stage costumes for Kylie Minogue’s upcoming tour.

‘For some time, I have found true fulfilment in working on the haute couture: it allows me to express my creativity and taste for research and experimentation,’ wrote Gaultier in a letter to WWD. ‘This is a new beginning, I will be able to express again my creativity fully and without constraints.’

We're sure he'll go out with a bang in Paris, and we can't wait. Bonne chance!
