Opening Ceremony's co-founder and co-proprietor Humberto Leon interviewed legendary French designer Jean Paul Gaultier—the original enfant terrible—recently. Ummmm did you know that JPG once released a pop single? It's called How to do that and that there is a link to the music video. Uh-huh. "I sold around 30,000 records," Gaultier tells Leon, "almost made it to the Top 50, but I think that was my last foray into the music business as a musician. I prefer to dress the stars."
