LONDON (AP) - Nautical sailor tops and Madonna’s conical bra are coming to London next year in an exhibition of the work of fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

“The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier” will open at the Barbican Centre in April 2014.

It features more than 140 outfits by the cutting-edge French couturier, including the bra-and-corset costume from Madonna’s 1990 Blonde Ambition tour and outfits for singers Kylie Minogue and Bjork. There are also pieces from Gaultier’s couture collections, which often feature sailor stripes.

The show comes from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and is currently running at Rotterdam’s Kunsthal gallery.

Gaultier said Wednesday that London held a special place in his heart, because “the English were the first ones to come to my shows and appreciate my fashion.”
