Jean Paul Gaultier AW2003 Skeleton Tattoo Shirt

Jean Paul Gaultier AW2003 Skeleton Tattoo 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 elaborately printed shirt hails from the Jean Paul Gaultier Maille line, and features the type of luxurious fabric blend the line was known for. Slim but not form-fitting, as some of his other tattoo tops were, this shirt features a woman’s face juxtaposed atop a decomposed skeleton wrought with bugs and spiders.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
