Jean Paul Gaultier SS2000 "Anarchism" Pants


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.

JPG by Gaultier was a more youthful offshoot of the designer’s mainline, which symbiotically aimed to cater towards the young and fashion-forward market he drew so much inspiration from. It was prescient in its attitudes towards gender, as much of the line was intended to be unisex. Like much of his work, these pants reference a subculture that was largely thought of as taboo, with mohawk’d punks on display, and Gaultier's own “JPG” logo interspersed between.
