Jean Paul Gaultier SS1997 Strait-Jacket Vest


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 shimmering nylon vest features a quartet of D-Ring bondage fastenings, which can be opened, closed, loosened, and tightened as the wearer chooses, allowing for a variety of different ways to style this piece.
