Hey, you know what?
Jesus really knows his shit.
Oh sure, this isn’t for everyone, but it’s such a strong statement and it’s so well-executed that we’re surprised that the judges barely mentioned it.
In fact, we don’t think anyone else did a better job of producing a garment that evoked “envy” more than this. For that alone, he should have won it. The bindings on the legs combined with the frantic, almost schizophrenic scribblings really set the tone for the piece. Even if we hadn’t been told the particulars of the design challenge, we could have looked at this and made a pretty good guess.
And what really made it stand out was the witty way the piece starts off at the top almost conventionally light and pretty and gets deliberately uglier and darker on the way down. You can’t not pause and take the whole effect in. Good job, Jaysus. And judges? Crack is whack, yo.
