Gaultier was knows for his sexually charged imagery which pushed the boundaries to form new connections between himself and cultural subsections. He was known to play with gender roles, putting men on his women’s runway and vice-verse. His ‘Jean’s’ label is known to be one of his most unisex bodies of work to date. Whereby branding was seen to promote gender fluidity.
Here we have a fine example of his ‘Jean’s’ line, constructed in a luxurious linen/polyester blend to give off a trompe l’oeil effect of denim. Featuring a cropped body and longer sleeves, custom JPG hardware throughout along with two asymmetrical chest pockets on opposite sides of the fabric. The button closure is seen to be hidden by a placket with one button visible at the collar. Finally, a small brand tab is stitched into the left side seam and another branded tag on the nape of the neck. Made in Italy.
