About Jean Paul Gaultier

A childhood memory becomes a femme fatale.

In 1993, Jean Paul Gaultier launched his first Fragrance, Classique. The extraordinary designer offers his multifaceted view of femininity, in the shape of a fascinating amazon woman which is brought to life through the memory of his grandmother’s corset, a recurring theme that has been constantly reinterpreted in his collections for almost forty years.

An unexpected and groundbreaking bust shaped bottle with generous curves, a tribute

to feminine beauty. Etched on the transparent glass is Jean Paul Gaultier’s emblematic garment for women: the corset.  A symbol of seduction and extreme sensuality. The iconoclastic designer appropriates an everyday object and transforms it into an artistic case: the now-famous metal can.
