An Early Jean Paul Gaultier Exaggerated Breast Dress c. 1983-84

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very rare Jean Paul Gaultier black jersey full length dress with exaggerated breasts. This dress is an early example of Gaultier's iconic and innovative cone-bra dresses which later he did for Madonna and throughout his career. The dress moulds to the body throughout and is cut with two extended breasts which are meant to be padded.

We believe this dress may be early than 1983-84 however, through research the earliest reference imagery of dresses with exaggerated breasts begin from the year 1983.

This is an extremely rare and unique piece perfect for museums.
