My Funky Deconstructed & Reworked Project


This is actually an “in-works” project. It came from my desire to test my creativity AND to create pieces that I really want to wear ... almost to the point of inventing excuses to wear it.

I am in the process of combining my Rick Owens & Jean-Charles de Castelbajac jackets. The Rick Owens denim was a floaty cape style with horizontal boning in a high, loose-cut back. I loved the raw edges and drape.

The Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Jacket had a military-style structure that I thought would add the perfect amount of “weight” to amp up the cape-like drama... especially when I layer its sleeves over the denim’s and leave those red sleeves open from the elbow, down.
