Gaultier's Point of View

Sketches of Suit and Bustier by Jean Paul Gaultier 1990

There's a chance that Marc Jacob's Spring 2010 show is also a nod to fashions of the late '80s/early '90s and to Jean Paul Gaultier's iconic cone-cupped bustier. Custom-made for Madonna, she wore it with a pinstriped men's tailored suit during her Blond Ambition tour of 1990. Gaultier himself resurrected the look in HIS 2010 show. There's a striking juxtaposition between the retro-looking satin corsetry and sharply tailored sportswear. He also created a denim version.
