Like no other figure in fashion, Jean Paul Gaultier disrupted the rarefied world of couture with his transgressive vision of beauty.
Inspired by punks, burlesque, screen goddesses, gender-benders, fetishists and subcultures of every stripe, Gaultier’s collections shocked audiences, yet the impeccable craftsmanship of his clothes commanded admiration and respect.
That is because his subversive sensibility is combined with a supreme talent for cut and tailoring.
After years of acclaimed success in fashion, Jean Paul Gaultier translated his unique universe into iconic fragrances.
Puig took a majority stake in Jean Paul Gaultier’s fashion business in 2011; the fragrance division was integrated in 2016. In partnership with the designer, Puig is re-infusing the brand with Gaultier’s uniquely provocative, playful DNA. Witness the reboot of the worlds of Classique and Le Male – still in the top 10 of most international markets 25 years after their launch.
