Jean Paul Gaultier Krishna "Sitting In A Tree" Top - SS94
Details Jean Paul Gaultier carved out a name for himself as a world-renowned designer by channeling a unique connection between himself and various cultural subsections. Gaultier got his start in the industry at eighteen when he landed a job as an assistant, for Patou, studying under the tutelage of Pierre Cardin. After developing his craft with Cardin and then later with Michel Goma at Patou, Gaultier launched his own line in 1976. Quickly garnering attention for his outlandish and extravagant designs Gaultier became the bad boy of fashion. Channeling different influences from, punk, BDSM to eastern garments Gaultier infused his own provocative imagery into these many subcultures through his unique designs. Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring Summer 1994 collection showcased an uncompromising vision of cultural diversity. The tops influenced by African and Eastern patterns and iconography featured Gaultier’s long running tattoo motifs throughout the collection. Androgynous shapes and silhouettes were another staple of the collection as men wore a variety of skirts and kilts. An essential piece in the collection this orange sheer top features an edited painting of the Hindu god Krishna sitting in a tree with a group of Gopis bathing below him. The stretchable fabric allows for unique ways of styling and can fit comfortably in both male and female wardrobes.
