Inspired by Ruth E. Carter’s outstanding costume design, this jacket features striking angular lines of tonality and texture. Two fabrics, cotton canvas and a waxed cotton canvas, are pieced together to create depth. Each intricate line of the design is sewn in place and created by seams, not screenprinting. The end result is a work of wearable art that will transform your wardrobe and imbue you with the power to feel superhuman.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We will not make this piece again and will never offer it for sale.
The winner’s jacket will be custom made to fit them in our Easthampton, MA studio. Shown here is the men’s cut. If you prefer our women’s cut, we will happily adjust the design to accommodate that preference. You can choose your thread color to customize the overall look of the finished jacket.
