Jean Paul Gaultier Bondage 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.

This jacket represents a quintessentially Gaultier take on an Americana staple, which he dresses up with steampunk and BDSM detailing. It features harness buckled straps which can be drawn taut across the body or hung down one's back, and a row of metal eyelets threaded in a corset style. It’s rare to see this iconic Gaultier design technique, immortalized by Madonna, referenced in a menswear piece.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
