For the past forty years, Jean Paul Gaultier has left his mark on international fashion.  In a spectacular show – a rather innovative and crazy, I could say, installation – the Kunsthalle in Munich is celebrating a double anniversary: “Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk” is the 100th exhibition of its 30-year history.
