I ran into Jean-Paul Gaultier on my trip back from #INTA2022.

He was on his way to the film festival “Confrontation”, at the Cinémathèque euro-régionale Institut Jean Vigo, where, as a guest of honor, he talked about his favorite movies and inspirations.

The movie “Querelle”, for example, from film director Fassbinder (released in 1982), seems to have been the source of inspiration of his iconic “marinière”.

On both sides of the picture are a few publications of his marinière found in several fashion magazines from the 80’s and 90’s extracted from our archives.

After an 8-hour plane trip + the jetlag, Jean-Paul Gaultier brightened my day, I am a true fan!
