Jean Paul Gaultier 1995/96 Virus Man Leather Jacket

Iconic 1995/96 vintage "Virus Man" leather jacket by Jean Paul Gaultier. Bone colored leather jacket with massive ribbed waistline. Gold colored hardware throughout with JPG logo snaps + enameled arrow zipper pull. Screenprinted JPG logo and "Safe Sex" in metallic gold on front. But wait, it gets better! Massive punk rock style screenprint on back of "Virus Man" comic. In excellent vintage condition. Very slight craquelure to oversize graphic on back panel as expected with age/use.

The JPG line was introduced in 1994 as a youthful, street savvy, unisex line. Gaultier, like Moschino + other early 90's designers, used fashion to help promote social awareness. This particular piece deals with AIDS + safe sex, a topic close to Gaultier's heart after the loss of his longtime partner, Francis Menuge, in 1990. Just a fantastic piece of fashion history.
