Jean Paul Gaultier Mayakovsky Shearling Trucker Jacket - AW97
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. Inspired by the aesthetics of “The Matrix” and other seminal sci-fi works of the time Gaultier’s take on Cyberpunk imagery is on full display. This Shearling Jacket features a photo print of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky distorted to create a camo graphic throughout the garment. Black shearling adorns the chest pockets and cuffs of the garment.
