Jean Paul Gaultier Creates Exclusive Pieces Inspired by Melina Mercouri



Creations inspired by Melina MercouriFrench Haute Couture and Prêt-à-Porter fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier gladly accepted the Melina Mercouri Foundation challenge to design two collectible garments inspired by Greek actress, singer and politician Melina Mercouri.

Incited by the magnificence that is still being exhaled by some of Mercouri’s photos taken by legendary photographers Douglas Kirkland and Bill Yoscary, the internationally renowned designer curated the creation of a marinière (striped blouse) and a t-shirt, all revenues of which will be available exclusively to the Melina Mercouri Foundation.

The marinière, a classic symbol of style and a characteristic garment in Melina’s wardrobe, becomes again the absolute statement and standout piece for fashionistas worldwide.

The designer clothes are produced in limited pieces in Greece by the Melina Mercouri Foundation strictly following the quality standards of Gaultier.
