Remember when Jean Paul Gaultier released an electro-pop music video?

The designer shows us “How To Do That” with a little help from Naomi Campbell

Prepare to lay your eyes on what could perhaps be the most 80s thing you’ve ever seen. We’ve clambered out of a deep (deep) YouTube hole to present you with “How To Do That” – a (criminally) forgotten 1989 electro-pop track recorded by none other than Jean Paul Gaultier, who this week staged a very 60s-inspired couture show which featured a cameo from model Coco Rocha and her mini-me daughter. Awww.

Though Gaultier is well-known as the enfant terrible of French fashion, and as Antoine de Caune’s partner-in-crime on Eurotrash, that he also fancied himself as a pop-star might just be brand new infomation to many. 

The video for “How To Do That” sees Gaultier sketching away at his desk, waiting for inspiration to strike, as models including a v fresh-faced Naomi Campbell throw some pretty interesting moves – all while wearing classic JPG styles. Breton tops? Button-down military-inspired jackets? Conical bras? Check, check and check.   

The track was produced by Tony Mansfield, who was behind (slightly more successful – sorry Jean Paul) hits by a-ha and the B-52s, which should give you an idea as to what to expect, and since we first watched it, it’s pretty safe to say we’ve barely been able to get it out of our heads.
