Talk: "Jean Paul Gaultier’s Le Male: Anatomy of a Fragrance"

Friday, October 25, 2013 at 12 p.m.
Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

To mark the opening of the exhibition The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk, Beauté Prestige International USA, W Magazine, and the Brooklyn Museum host a discussion ranging from fashion to fragrance. Francis Kurkdjian, world-renowned perfumer and creator of Gaultier’s Le Male, and Thierry-Maxime Loriot, exhibition curator from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, explore the development of the designer's iconic scent. Moderated by Jane Larkworthy, W Magazine’s Beauty Director, the conversation will reveal how Gaultier’s vision of men’s fashion and perspective on contemporary masculinity was realized in his fragrance.

No RSVP required. Tickets for the event are included with admission to the Gaultier exhibition, and are available at Visitor Services the day of the program. Members receive free admission and may pick up an event ticket at the Membership desk the day of the program.
