He visualised the rock touch of the studded leather jacket as made out of an extraordinary material like crystal. This led him to design Diamond Rocker, a sleeveless denim jacket beautified with Swarovski crystal Spikes and Studs and Swarovski crystal embroidery.

Gaultier wanted to create a design that is the "celebration of spikes and studs in different forms that become transparent, mirrored, and clearly stimulate extreme creation".

"I've tried to realise a vintage denim jacket, that, all of a sudden, becomes studded by a haute couture biker, as if the biker himself would have done it, and clearly all this is magical, completely unique and the real Haute Couture," he said in a statement.

The creation was recently showcased at his Haute Couture Catwalk event in Paris.
