The “Penance” Jacket came from the Shadowy Figures capsule collection - one chapter of DUSK.
The Shadowy Figures collection embodies how religion has been used to mask and reroute our natural desires and emotions.
These five pieces explore what it is to be both imprisoned and powerful at the same time. Dark solids override the vibrant jewel tones of organza, which reflect light and change color while revealing intimate details of the bodies underneath.
Penance: A body hugging military style jacket has been reformed in to a "bodice with sleeves". With excessive fastenings, and a backcutaway revealing metallic silver underneath the black jacket body, it symbolizes the absolution promised after penance has been paid. The underdress, a simply lycra and organza/tulle creation, displays a cross out of net in the front, revealing intimate details of the wearer's body while covering her from neck to toe.
Cost : $375 plus $10 shipping
