Jean Paul Gaultier Spring-Summer 2004 Black Corseted Blazer

Corset elements have always thrilled and inspired Jean Paul Gaultier to design the infinite variety of iconic pieces. Corsets for sure were an over-all characteristic of his Spring-Summer 2004 collection, with jackets and blazers that sucked in the waist creating a more sculptural effect. Giving a practical, everyday application to such complex pieces has always been a strength of Jean Paul Gaultier; and this SS2004 black corseted blazer is one of the pieces reflecting this distinctive «handwriting» of the designer.
This classic black jacket has padded shoulders, a two-way zipper closure at the front and a laced tie at the back; a body part consists of fragments of fabric that create a tightening corset effect.
