LES MARINS

The sailor image is more than an inspiration for Jean Paul Gaultier: it is an obsession! Even as a child, he often wore a sailor shirt that went on to become his signature. With his campaigns and designs, Jean Paul Gaultier brought his sailor fantasy to the entire world. In 2021, the House sets its sights on Ready-to-Wear, after several years of hiatus, with a not-to-be-missed collection: Les Marins. In the campaign video, Bella Hadid stars as a cone-breasted mermaid. Like the collection itself, the communication shows that the best way to go is against the flow.
