    Latest Fashion News: Jean-Paul Gaultier Exhibition in Munich

    Oktober 6th, 2015

    This exhibition celebrates the boldness and inventiveness of Jean-Paul Gaultier’s avant-garde fashion, taking a thematic journey through his multifaceted sources of inspiration. With his designs, the couturier has addressed the concerns and issues of a multicultural society from the very beginning: at the time, he continues to wreak havoc with traditional social and aesthetic norms with his own brand of tongue-in-cheek humor. The artistry of his works is a combination of the exceptional skill demanded by the various ranges of haute couture, Gaultier’s exuberant imagination and his epoque-making artistic collaborations. The exhibition invites the visitor to take an open, impartial look at society by creating a world of whimsy and sensitivity, comedy and sauciness, that all can enter as they are.

    Jean-Paul Gaultier from the sidewalk to the catwalk

    For the past forty years, Jean-Paul Gaultier has left his mark on international fashion. At the same time, he never fails to live up to his reputation as an “enfant terrible” of haute couture. Gaultier stands for bold, critical and avant-garde design. With his own inimitable, tongue-in-cheek humor, he throws down the gauntlet – challenging established aesthetic ideas, gender roles and classic fashion norms. Using sophisticated technology, the exhibition showcases more than 140 of his creations, all of which have been produced with superb craftsmanship. The show is a spectacular installation: innovative, intermedial and rather crazy. Following the resounding success of the world tour, Munich offers the last chance to experience Gaultier’s unique wold of fashion. The Kunsthalle is celebrating a double anniversary: “Jean-Paul Gaultier” is the 100th exhibition of its 30-year history.

    Fashion History Classics: Who invented the Men’s Skirt?

    März 5th, 2012

    In 1985, Jean Paul Gaultier caused a shock in the fashion’s world by introducing the men-skirt. While outside of Western culture, male clothing already includes skirts and skirt-like garments, like a single sheet of fabric folded and wrapped around the waist, such as the “dhoti” or “lungi” in India, and “sarong” in South and Southeast Asia – the wearing of a men’s skirt is usually seen as typical for females and not males in North America and much of Europe today.
