Then I wanted to mix that with what we always do, like the archetypal outerwear pieces the perfecto bikers and things like that and the proportion came through studying the band and also trying to push the archetypal like the padding you saw was inside the biker jacket, this quilting that is always red or yellow or blue, then just oversizing that and making it really wintery. We put metal in between the leathers, so it is two leathers and then we glued together with metal so we can make this shape that looked a bit worn but also a bit like paper. I like jewellery but I didn’t want any chockers or rings or anything like that. I felt I had had enough of that. So I wanted this big body jewellery or these big metal pieces that were sort of like jewellery. Music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
