Inspired by my Max Tilke Costume Patterns and Design book. This book, a much treasured massive tome of hand coloured plates, illustrating primitive and ethnic costume from all over the world. There is something infinitely pure and comforting about cutting a pattern like this. Although it may look like something a 3 year old could create, the mathematical poetry of proportion that seems to naturally appear from cutting in this way is surprisingly interesting and puts me in mind of it’s ancestry.

This garment needs to be worn very oversized. It has a raised rim to the wide set collarless neckline which together with the large buttons hints at the retro mid century feel, the rim which has a suede binding is cut to flatter the neck. This jacket can be worn inside out, displaying the leathery side, which forms an irregular natural grey shaded pattern.
