A year ago, when I went to Paris for the first time, I had no idea what the fuss was about.
In the same week, I was going to spend a day at an art gallery called Gagosian, where a gallery-owner called Jean-Paul Gaultier was exhibiting some of the most celebrated works in the collection.
For me, the most striking piece in the show was a pair of black jeans that I’d been given to wear as a gift for my parents.
These jeans were from Van Dale, the brand of designer Jean-Michel Gaulty, a friend of Gaulter’s who was one of the founders of the brand.
He wore the jeans as a present to his parents in 1969, when they were just getting married in France.
When I saw the jeans, I knew that these jeans were going to be the next big thing in jeans.
Gaultiers jeans had become iconic in the late 1960s, as the style that made them cool.
I’d never seen a pair with the black, leather collar and the black leather cuffs, and it was a piece of couture that seemed to be on a collision course with the avant-garde.
I also didn’t know the brand’s name, or the style of the jeans.
I was curious to find out, but I had to go out and buy them.
A month later, I went back to Paris to try them out.
I couldn’t help but feel a bit uneasy.
The jeans looked like they were from a collection that wasn’t available in my local store, but that was precisely why I had bought them.
At that point, Van Dales jeans had already become iconic.
They had become the first jeans to break the mold.
In 1971, Gaulters jeans went on sale, and within three years, they had become an icon.
At the time, Gaults was the first brand to produce denim that was 100 percent vegan, and also the first denim company to offer a range of jeans in the style known as V-Neck.
V-neck jeans had a unique silhouette: The front pockets were pulled into a line.
The sides of the pants were closed by a thin layer of denim, which was then sewn into the front.
The V-collar was made of a single piece of denim that connected to the front of the pant leg.
Vneck jeans also became a popular style among young girls.
The styling of the front pockets was the same as the back pockets, with the collar opening out.
The denim was then woven into a series of long, straight pieces that could be worn on either side of the body.
The fabric on the front was also woven into the back, so the front pocket didn’t have to be sewn directly to the body at all.
In 1970, VanDale released the first collection of jeans made with the V- neck style.
The collection was called Van Daley’s jeans, and Van Daly was the designer behind the jeans—he also produced the denim used in the original designs of the Van Dalois brand.
The Van Dalfys brand was launched in 1970, and Gault had joined the company to run the label.
The first jeans made using the V neck style were called VanDaly’s Vintage V- necks, and they were sold exclusively at stores owned by Gault.
As the brand expanded, it also expanded into other styles.
In 1977, Galdies jeans became the first line of jeans to include a cinch, the traditional method of opening a zipper up the front and closing it down the back.
In 1980, the VanDales brand launched the new, sleek, slim-fit, skinny-fit style called the Van Werts jeans.
The classic Van WERT style was so successful that it was inspired by the jeans of the 1930s, which featured a simple cinch closure.
By the late 1980s, Van Witzes jeans had been made in three variations, all of which were made with a cinched closure.
The new skinny-fits made from the new cinching style became so popular that the jeans became popular with young girls as well as the men.
In 1989, the first Gaulties jeans were released, and in 1992, Gavy joined Van Dals in launching a line of skinny- fit jeans.
These skinny-fitting jeans had an overall look that was very much in line with Gault’s V- Neck jeans.
And Gault, who was at the time a fashion designer and owner of the designer-owned Gault & Van Dykes, continued to produce and sell the style through the early 2000s.
At this point, there was a big push for more ethical denim.
And as a fashion photographer, I wanted to be part of it.
The second generation of Gaults jeans was the Gavys denim line, which is the line that
