Jean Paul Gaultier AW2003 Corset Lace Trucker Jacket


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.

Corset Lace Trucker Jacket. Gaultier’s experimentations with corset fastenings resulted in some of his most legendary works. However, the design technique rarely crossed over into his menswear output. This jacket is a rare exception, featuring lace fastenings down both sleeves and through the sides of the body. It furthermore displays a unique cotton and nylon double-layer fabric blend he employed over a variety of notable pieces within his JPG by Gaultier line.
