Flashback Friday: Watch Jean Paul Gaultier's 'House Couture' Single From The 80s

The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier' exhibition [Rex]

This week the 'The Fashion World Of Jean Paul Gaultier' exhibition opened at London’s Barbican Gallery, looking at how Gaultier has shaped fashion over the last 40 years. The exhibition has over 165 pieces of couture and ready-to-wear from the 70s now, including Madonna's bras and corsets from the Blonde Ambition World Tour.

For this week's fash pack flashback we have a special JPG treat for you - his dance video 'How To Do That' from 1988. Yes, he once released a single. The House Couture video was directed by fashion photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino, and features JPG in all white everything raving while he sketches.

If the 80s could be summed up in one video this would be it: there are caged bras, bonkers hats, Naomi Campbell, men in mesh and dancing scissors. Compared to the outfits, the lyrics are pretty simple as he just says 'bring some technique' on loop. So put on your best blue and white stripes and have a JPG moment by watching the video below...
