Tartan has inspired numerous Jean Paul Gaultier’s pieces, including the ones that are showcased in the Thierry-Maxime Loriot-curated « The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier : From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk » exhibition, at New York’s Brooklyn Museum, from October 25, 2013 until February 23, 2014.

The Scottish kilt is one of Jean Paul Gaultier’s signatures, and the couturier has often spotlighted this pattern, particularly in his Spring/Summer 1984 collection (« The Return of the print / Le Retour de l’imprimé »), his Autumn/Winter 1987-1988 Menswear collection (« The Rock Stars / Les Rock Stars »), his Autumn/Winter 1991-1992 Menswear collection (« The Prisoner / Le Prisonnier »), his Autumn/Winter 1998-1999 Menswear collection (« Like a Prayer »), and his Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear collection.
