Jean Paul Gaultier AW1992 Jacquard 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 jeans display a menagerie of faces who span both era and emotion. Some of the faces belong to bygone celebrities, while others are total strangers. Compared to the other iterations of this piece, these pants took significantly more care to craft, as they are fully jacquard. The faces are woven in, not printed, making every iteration of these pants singularly unique, due to variations in the arrangement of the collage.
