Jean Paul Gaultier AW1984 Floral Cardigan

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 knit floral comes from Gaultier’s second ever men’s collection, which doubled as his first men’s winter output. It’s made with a base of heavy wool, and the hand-done duplicate stitched flowers feature a blend of bouclé, wool and mohair. 


Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
