Jean Paul Gaultier, Subject of a New Documentary, Says His Favorite Piece of Clothing Is "the Condom"

Jean Paul Gaultier, Subject of a New Documentary, Says His Favorite Piece of Clothing Is "the Condom"

>> Farida Khelfa, who first walked for Jean Paul Gaultier in the '80s and later was his couture director for a time (she's also known as Azzedine Alaia's muse), has directed a 52-minute documentary on the designer, Jean Paul Gaultier ou les codes bouleversés (Jean Paul Gaultier or the shattered codes), which premieres on television tonight in France. The film spans Gaultier's 30-year career, and Khelfa invited her best friend Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, also a friend of the designer, to interview him. They discussed his commitment to the fight against AIDS, which began after he lost his lover and business partner Francis Menuge in 1990 to the disease. “My favorite piece of clothing is the condom, because it protects from the virus,” he tells Bruni-Sarkozy. Khelfa says she wants to do another designer documentary soon. [WWD]
