Jean Paul Gaultier AW1992 Face Denim

Jean Paul Gaultier AW1992 Face Denim


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.

These now famous jeans are both visually alluring and complex in their construction. They depict a menagerie of faces who span both era and emotion. Each of these pairs were singularly unique, with no two bearing the same collage-like arrangement of faces. Notably, the back of this pair is reversed, with the faces laying upside down.
