Jean Paul Gaultier Parachute Shirt


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 pullover exemplifies the fetishwear, club-kid aesthetic that has become synonymous with Gaultier’s name. It opens and shuts via zipper closure, and features a horizontal parachute buckle across the chest, along with intersecting straps over the back. Further detailing includes a functional back-zip pocket, and a unique double-layer cotton/nylon blend that gives the outer piece an appearance of being a separate piece of clothing,
