After working in retail for 4+ years, I finally caved in and got a Rick Owens leather jacket. What to wear it with? Say, a pair of yarn-dyed stripe drawstring pants (a sample for H & L that I just made, and will be available come next spring). ***Note the perfectly matching stripes! Didn't even notice there were patch pockets, did you?!?!***
Despite the jacket, I will NOT become one of those stereotypical Rick Owens caricatures, and will never be caught dead in a drapey cardigan!
By the way, the movie "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" is very good, highly recommend.

Because of certain upcoming "events", I have been drawing quite a lot this week. I've never been so productive, not even in senior year at Parsons?!?!
Ohhhhhhh... pressure always work wonders.
Now, I wish my fingers can fly like this!

So, here is a photo of the jacket finally!!
Made from 3 pairs of GAP cargo pants and 2 swatches of sequins for the sleeve lining. (Reduce! Reuse!! Recycle!!!)
What to wear it with? Say... a silk camp shirt by Dries van Noten and a pair of skin-tight leather leggings?
This is project 1 of three for a certain fabulous lady with the initials "CG"!
More to come soon...
