"JPG" by Jean Paul Gaultier Utility Bondage Pants in black/grey. Jean Paul Gaultier may need some reintroduction as much of his work seems to be overlooked by modern men's fashion enthusiasts despite his massive contribution to men's & unisex fashion.
Gaultier has zero formal training or schooling in tailoring but apprenticed under his grandmother which led him to be Pierre Cardin's assistant in the 70's, then soon after released his solo collection in '76 captivating the voice of what French critics call the "Enfant Terrible" movement. JPG is a pioneer, along with Westwood, of high fashion appropriating youth street culture and garments on the catwalk. 1985, at the peak of Gaultier's reign, came the signature man-skirts and sailor pants. Models were typically younger or older than conventional models, sometimes riddled with tattoos or body modifications. Some models were rather androgynous which displayed JPG's unisex garments fittingly, a catalyst to the JPG by Gaultier unisex line in the 90's. Finally, in recent years and his final project outside of his own label is receiving the baton from Margiela at Hermes, heading the house from 03-10.
