Since the creation of his fashion house in 1976, Jean Paul Gaultier has shaken up genres and broken boundaries. Gifted with an exceptional level of expertise, as demonstrated during haute couture fashion shows showcasing the most exclusive works, his fashion is unconventional and accessible to everyone. The "enfant terrible of fashion" has several sources of inspiration, with some ideas coming straight from the street and others inspired by his own personal history. His spectacular fashion shows display pieces that have become legendary, such as corsets, sailor tops and skirts for men. In 1993, Jean Paul Gaultier launched his first Classique fragrance for women, shortly followed by the version Le Male in 1995.
