Jean Paul Gaultier’s unique take on film and fashion, now at CaixaForum Madrid

Madrid, 17 February 2022

  • Film and Fashion by Jean Paul Gaultier, an exhibition jointly organised by ”la Caixa” Foundation and La Cinémathèque française, takes the visitor on an eclectic journey that fuses film and fashion and features great creators and artists, all seen through the highly personal gaze of this enfant terrible in his dual role as both couturier and movie buff.
  • Taking a sociological approach and avoiding mythomania, the show explores the context of film costume design, emphasising key aspects such as female empowerment and its reflection in twentieth-century fashion and movies.
  • The exhibition features works by such outstanding designers as Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin and Sybilla, as well as some 80 iconic film looks reflected by the outfits worn by such stars as Audrey Hepburn, Sharon Stone, Grace Kelly, Catherine Deneuve and Madonna, and costumes fromSuperman, The Mask of Zorro, Rocky to name but three, as well as video screenings, original posters and photos.
