Get a whiff of Le Male Pride eau de toilette collector’s edition
Described as enfant terrible of the fashion industry, designer Jean Paul Gaultier forwarded avant-garde concepts with unconventional materials for his eponymous label. Jean Paul’s most notable clients listed Madonna, Marion Cotillard, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, and even our very own Imelda Marcos.
Last year, Jean Paul celebrated his 50th anniversary with a grand farewell show during Paris Fashion Week. Spectators who witnessed the 69-year-old couturier’s last presentation included Nicholas Ghesquière, Viktor & Rolf, Christian Louboutin, Dries Van Noten, Clare Waight Keller, and many more.
Even if he has bowed out of fashion for good, he always believed that fashion will hold a special place in our lives. “It’s about a need for visual recognition, staking a claim,” Jean Paul said.
To this day, the Gaultier brand continues to bring forth the designer’s vision into fruition. And for Pride 2021, the label’s most famous fragrance, Le Male, is getting a special makeover. “True to Jean Paul Gaultier’s committed non-conformism and original fragrance, this collector’s edition Le Male Pride eau de toilette proudly and conspicuously sports the rainbow of tolerance he holds so dear,” the brand states. “Its sailor stripe embodies masculinity and liberty, while its powerful, sensual trail nails its colors to the mast: long live the beauty of our differences!”
