Jean Paul Gaultier dresses up two of Kusmi tea‘s oldest and most emblematic blends, ‘Anastasia’ and ‘Prince Vladamir’. These infusions of dried leaves date back to the company’s beginnings in Saint Petersburg, influenced by the story of the grand duchess Anastasia – daughter of the Romanov dynasty’s czar Nicholas II; and Vladimir the great – ruler of holy Russia.

In a celebration of Kusmi tea’s representation of these iconic historic characters, the French fashion designer has drawn on his 1980s Russian collection, reworking his fetish codes to adorn the tea collection in his signature style of sailor stripes, and tattoo motifs — mixing masculine and feminine in a fashionable way.
