From the uniform of the masses to the dreamlike fashions showcased in his runway shows, Jean Paul Gaultier remains convinced that fashion will always have a special place in our lives: “It’s about a need for visual recognition, staking a claim.”
But the couturier refuses to be defined as either political or provocative. A man of conviction, he sees himself more as a revolutionary, systematically calling into question clichés, standards, codes, conventions and traditions.
He turns, shifts and flips them around - even destroys them - in his bid to reinvent them.
Challenging but highly desirable, perfumes Jean Paul Gaultier embody themes dear to the creator. Male, female, couture corset for her, sailor for Him ..."Classic" and "Le Male" iconic perfumes, unique fragrances. They are the symbol of femininity and hyper ultra masculinity.
