Farfetch launches Jean Paul Gaultier Vault

Farfetch collection of Gaultier's designs

Buying a designer piece is like buying a piece of fashion history. To many, a dress is not just a dress, but a tangible realisation of a moment in time, and an insight into the zeitgeist.

Many a fashion editor will think back with regret to the jacket that they didn't buy, the shoes they wish that they never gave away… But now Farfetch is giving us a second chance.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Vault is an edit of 50 pieces that encapsulate the early years of Gaultier's career, all available to buy from 30 October. From the knitted dress with cone-shaped bust to the body-con crop top with cutout panels, the edit reads as a Greatest Hits for the legendary designer.


It's like a fashion time machine, and we can't wait to take a ride…
