Jean Paul Gaultier exhibits his fashion designed for cinema, at Lacoste

In collaboration with the Cinémathèqiue française, a retrospective focuses on the links between cinema and the great designer Jean Paul Gaultier at the SCAD Fash Museum and Film, in the municipality of Lacoste (in the Vaucluse, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Or region).

Jean Paul Gaultier is much more than just a sailor designer. In addition to the maritime world, he also drew great inspiration from cinema.


Jean Paul Gaultier’s happy connections between fashion and cinema are on display at Lacoste

This is demonstrated by a dress by Greta Garbo Queen Christina by Rouben Mamoulian (1933), Jane Fonda’s metal corsets in Barbarella by Roger Vadim (1968), or the Droogs outfit in Clockwork Orange by Kubrick (1971). He has also designed some costumes for major films such as The cook, the thief, his wife and her lover (1989) by Peter Greenaway, Kika (1993) by Pedro Almodovar, The city of lost children (1995) by Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. And naturally The fifth element by Luc Besson (accused by several women of sexism and sexual violence). It is to highlight this happy link between fashion and cinema that SCAD Fash Lacoste proposes a retrospective event.


Organized under his artistic direction, the exhibition “CinéMode by Jean Paul Gaultier” offers a combined history of cinema and fashion. Co-organized by La Cinémathèque française and the Caixa Foundation, it takes place within SCAD LAcoste, the French branch founded in 2002 of one of the best American universities of art, fashion and design. Nestled in the heart of the Luberon, SCAD Lacoste offers the general public an exhibition that can attract both film enthusiasts and fashion lovers!
