1980s Jean Paul Gaultier for GIBO jacket
Check out this wonderful, early Gaultier jacket. It is so iconic and absolutely Jean Paul!
There is no fabric tag, but it feels like linen, or perhaps a linen/silk blend. It was woven in 2 shades of golden brown so it has a dupioni sheen. The lapels are bronze silk dupioni, the jacket is lined in a silky fabric. The shoulders are padded, and so is the bottom half of the jacket so it stands out from the hips creating that hourglass effect. It is a beautifully made jacket, look at the zig-zag stitching along all the seams... and look at the lines of the jacket.... just amazing!
