Jean Paul Gaultier Blush Crinkle Silk Chiffon Rib Knit Yoke Skirt, 2000s
Jean Paul Gaultier’s designs always have a particular erotic drama to them. From his cone-bra corset designed for Madonna, Gaultier tends to create garments that convey an apocalyptic, deconstructionist aesthetic. Gaultier has a number of lines ranging from haute couture to childrenswear. His unapologetic styles dash his clothing with a hint of avant-garde but is what makes him so popular amongst bold celebrities such as Rihanna and Gaga.
Reflective of Gaultier’s signature aesthetic this ca. 2000 skirt is made from a combination of blush rib-knit cotton and a faded pink, silk crinkle chiffon. The rib-knit forms the skirt yoke to which the chiffon is attached in jagged arches at hip level. A warped waistline questions the finesse of the dress that is contrasted by the chandelier draping of the skirts handkerchief hem which is finished by the chiffon being tied into knots. This Gaultier design is eerie as it conveys a delicate yet distressed sentiment.
Size estimate: S
Waist: 27 inches
Hips: 36 inches
Length: 33 inches to 44 inches at the bottom of the knot.
