As a girl who grew up in the 70s and 80s with a belief that fashion is not about rules, I love Jean Paul Gaultier. But until I visited the exhibition at The Barbican I hadn’t realised exactly how prevalent his influence is nor how long lasting. Pieces I assumed were late 80s turned out to be from 2014!!! So rather than showcase my favourite pieces, I set out below the outfits which define the times and JPG!!!
Really can’t recommend this highly enough for anyone interested in 80s and 90s fashion – tartan, punk, bodycon, double denim, biker jackets, opulence, religious iconography it’s all there. And then afterwards sit outside with a glass of wine by the glorious fountains – bliss xxx
