Jean Paul Gaultier Reversible Mayakovsky Camo Bomber 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.

A continuance of Gauliter's cyberpunk aesthetic, this reversible MA-1 falls in line with the early 90s vision of a computer-dominated future, a fear which defined artists of the era’s work across mediums, not unlike the threat of nuclear war did to those in the 60s and 70s. Its aesthetic language is noticeably concurrent to that of the Matrix, one of the predominant visual texts of the time.

Within the green and yellow camo lies the face of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, whom Gauliter also presented on cargos, slim turtlenecks, and backpacks. This piece can be reversed and worn as a classic MA-1 bomber, wherein it features the classic furnishings, including a drop shoulder, metal hardware and leather pull tabs.
