Jean Paul Gaultier left behind his signature Breton stripes and travelled to New York circa Andy Warhol’s Factory days. There were a few graffitied dresses and tops, shiny bronze and gold leggings or skin-tight pants with matching windbreakers, snakeskin print suits complete with a tuxedo jacket, and lots of belted black fur coats with bright pink, orange and grey horizontal stripes. Looks were paired with white and black spike-heels, booties or platform sandals. One classic Gaultier did include (and played around with) in his collection was the trench coat.
