Jean Paul Gaultier supports the fight againsts Aids

"The striped t-shirt represents travel, freedom, hope and therefore life. Between the stipes there is the typical image of an arrow pierced heart, this message of hope is engraved on his body" JPG explains. He then concludes "Children are our hope for the future, so we have to do everything to stop them getting HIV. This reinterpreted striped t-shirt successfully illustrates the cause of this campaign."
