In the south of France, an exhibition of the legacy of Jean-Paul Gaultier has opened at the Shoe Museum

A new exhibition at the Musée de la Chaussure in the south of France explores the shoe designs of French fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier between the 1980s and 1990s. The exhibition took about two years to create and focuses on Gaultier's time working with designer Stéphane Kelian, one of the biggest names in the shoe industry at the time.

The duo produced some of Gaultier's most signature shoe design silhouettes from 1984 to 1996, and now a range of these models, as well as period clothing, advertisements, invitations, fashion show catalog clippings, and archival videos of Gaultier and Kelian are on display at the museum. .

The exhibition's exhibits are drawn from the Musée de la Chaussure's extensive shoe archive and complemented by items from the collections of seasoned collectors. Here are various versions of Kelian's wicker shoes, including derbies, reproduced in the XXL version, as well as models created personally by Jean-Paul Gaultier, for example, boots from his “Tattoo” collection.

You can also see Gaultier's first designer sneakers, which were part of his "French Gigolo" fall/winter 1986 collection, as well as unisex slip-ons from 1988.

The museum is located in the center of shoe production in France, the town of Roman-sur-Isère, in the former monastery of the Order of Visitandin. The Musée de la Chaussure's own collection includes more than 20 items.

The exhibition entitled “Jean Paul Gaultier pour Stephane Kélian” is open until November 3, 2024.
