Jean Paul Gaultier Acetate Shirt

Jean Paul Gaultier Acetate Shirt


With no formal fashion education to boast of, Jean Paul Gaultier established himself in the 70s and 80s as the “enfant terrible" of French fashion. His irreverent style left nothing sacred, dancing over the standard guard rails of high-fashion — he played with gender roles, adorning men in skirts decades before others opted to, and allowed plus sized women and older men to grace his runways. His talent was undeniable, though his utilization of such gifts made him a fiercely divisive designer. While often ripped by the French press, he gained the hearts of numerous subversive, forward-thinking icons, including Madonna and Marilyn Manson, both whom he conceptualized tour wardrobes for.

This top comes from the Junior Gaultier line, which ran from 1988-1994, and was designed to capture a more youthful market share than the mainline. In '94, the line was renamed JPG By Gaultier, and its former likeness was eventually recycled in 2009 for a children’s line. This top features an oversized cut and hidden placket closure, with an ink blot print beneath the label’s name in cursive.
