Jean Paul Gaultier
1 April – 3 august 2015
“Even as a boy, Gaultier was fascinated by the old-fashioned charm of the corset(..)
Reworking the early twentieth-century corsets and 1940s waist-cinchers dug out of his grandmother’s
wardrobe, he has invented new classics, like the celebrated cone bra and underwear as outerwear. Rather
than submission and imprisonment, in the wardrobes of women today, corset dresses symbolise power
“Jean Paul Gaultier is undoubtedly one of the most important fashion designers of recent decades.
Made between 1971 and 2015, these examples of his creativity have for the most part never been on public
display. It offers an open vision of society, a world of madness, of sensitivity, humour and irreverence in which
everyone can declare himself as he wishes. ”
I really enjoyed this exhibition of Jean Paul Gaultier yesterday. And it was actually allowed to take pictures!
I think I photographed it all, haha. (At most museums, it’s not possible to do so).
If you are in Paris right now, you should definitely go see it!
