JEAN PAUL GAULTIER’S CHARACTERISTIC IRREVERENT STYLE DATING FROM 1981 HAS LED TO HIS BEING KNOWN AS THE ENFANT TERRIBLE OF FRENCH FASHION
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER SIGNED PHOTO WITH HAND-DRAWN SKETCH “Jean Paul Gaultier” and his face sketch in black ink, 8 x 10.5, b/w, showing him paint splattered with his self-applied famous marinieres stripes which he made into a staple civilian French fashion that spread around the world. His many collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popular culture, where audacity sometimes triggers new trends. He has branched out into haute couture collections that are very formal, yet at the same time unusual and playful. His main inspirations are the French popular culture, the mixing of types and genders, sexual fetishism and futurist designs. In fine condition.
