Jean Paul Gaultier just launched an in-house rental service and a new new ready-to-wear collection at the same time.

The brand announced their second RTW collection in six years on Wednesday.

The inspiration is obvious when scrolling through the site, passing through tartan in all forms, shredded knits, and an overwhelming amount of leopard print. There are also some reimaginations of classic JPG pieces thrown in there, possibly most notably what is referred to as

“The Madone Trouser,”an extreme-high waisted wool blue, pinstripe trouser that culminates in a leather chest harness. The model on the site wears a branded tee under the pants, but true JPG heads will remember the first time a slightly different version of this look debuted, back in 1992 on the ultimate Gaultier muse, Madonna.

It was one of Madonna’s most controversial moments (which says a lot considering who we’re talking about). Madonna joined her longtime friend, Gaultier, to walk the runway for her first time, at the AIDS fundraising gala in support of amFAR. There, Madonna walked on stage holding Gaultier’s hand, wearing an oversized blazer on top of a pin-stripe, lace-up skirt. Before long, she ditched the blazer to reveal what was underneath. The skirt stopped right under her bust, where a harness perfectly wrapped around the pop star’s breasts. Madonna continued to model the look, fully exposed to the 6,000 person audience.

Ke.Mazur/WireImageThe Madone Trousers clearly take inspiration from this iconic moment, though they turn the skirt into a pair of pants, and shrink the harness, making it less likely to be used as a breast holster. Still, the reference is a nod to Gaultier and his boundary-pushing history, as if the brand is saying that while they may be entering into a new chapter, they will not forget their past.
