Jean Paul Gaultier Deconstructed Boxers Denim Skirt

A clever mix of traditionally feminine and masculine elements of clothing has always been a unique talent of Jean Paul Gaultier. His love for trompe l'oeil in prints and constructions is one of things that helped successfully cross sexual and gender stereotypes in fashion. Just like Martin Margiela, his former protégé, Gaultier used a lot of deconstruction in his designs to create something new and outstanding. Deconstructed blue jeans applied on white cotton trousers, as seen in his Spring 1994 Ready-to-Wear collection, are a perfect example of such approach. It was a theme which he was to rework many times in the coming years.
A similar approach was given to this boxer skirt from JPG Jean's line. A white elastic waist imitates the top of boxer shorts, and a deconstructed denim skirt is sewn to the cotton fabric. The skirt can be connected on both sides with zippers to hide the white parts.
