Warm up this winter with Jean Paul Gaultier latest.
Jean-Paul Gaultier has launched their fall–winter 2009 collection in India at the Bangalore store in the UB city mall.
Most of his creations that were shown on the European ramps are not taking up the shelves in Bangalore. Instead the line-up available on the racks is an elegant one that suits the Indian customer.
Blacks are in this season, trench coats for women and a variety of stuff to décor your winter wardrobe. Gaultier’s unconventional style is evident on all his creations though.
Gaultier never received formal training as a designer. Instead, he started sending sketches to famous couture stylists at an early age. Pierre Cardin was impressed by his talent and hired him as an assistant in 1970. Afterwards, he worked with Jacques Esterel in 1971 and Jean Patou later that year, then returning to manage the Pierre Cardin boutique in Manila for a year in 1974.
His first individual collection was released in 1976 and his characteristic irreverent style dates from 1981, and he has long been known as the enfant terrible (bad boy) of French fashion. Many of Gaultier's following collections have been based on street wear, focusing on popular culture, whereas others, particularly his Haute Couture collections, are very formal yet at the same time unusual and playful. Jean-Paul Gaultier produced sculptured costumes for Madonna during the nineties. One of them worth mentioning would be her infamous cone-bra for her Blond Ambition Tour, he also designed the wardrobe for her Confessions Tour in 2006, as well.
In addition to being a fashion designer, Jean-Paul Gaultier is known for a popular line of perfumes. His first fragrance, Classique, a women's floral-oriental, was introduced in 1993, followed by Le Mâle for men two years later.
