Fashion, interior design and art have converged at the Brooklyn Museum in the landmark exhibition, the Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier. The showcase illuminates significant moments within the designer’s career, including his furniture collection with Roche Bobois, who is a sponsor of the exhibition.
The first international exhibit dedicated to the French designer, it centers around seven themes of Gaultier’s top inspirations and features 140 haute couture pieces.
The Jean Paul Gaultier for Roche Bobois collection originated in 2010 and features upbeat, unique home furnishings including the bust lamp, the Mah Jong sofa in Couture Fabric, the Armoire Paravent, two limited-edition storage chests, a Dunkque India Rug, and the Ben Hur Chair.
The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier was created by the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in collaboration with Maison Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris. Following its New York presentation at the Brooklyn Museum (open through February 23), the exhibition’s next stop is London in April.
Roche Bobois will continue its collaboration with Gaultier this spring, presenting new pieces of furniture upholstered in couture fabrics.
