Jean Paul Gaultier's inspiration for nautical sailor stripes comes from a recollection of his childhood, when his mother dressed him in sailor stripes, he says in the interview. Gaultier was also influenced by Querelle de Brest, a film by Rainer Werner Fassbinder (1982) based on the novel by French writer Jean Genet.
