Haute couture and ready-to-wear garments from the Jean Paul Gaultier archives.

Jean Paul Gaultier hearts Montreal. He gushes about his “petits cousins Canadiens” in the quintessential French accent that has become his trademark—“The people are so sympathique, so nice,” and then he adds with a chuckle, “Not so snobbish as in Paris.” And, clearly, the feeling is mutual between the fashion icon and the artsy metropolis.
