Feifei Yang Child Soldier Transformable Coat

$ 1,000

    /charity/

This coat is inspired by the tragic and urgent world of child soldiers. The coat's metal buttons and rubber tubing function as a way to change the size and shape of the coat. The original, oversized silhouette is an homage to the many children around the world who are forced to grow up and function as adults while still in a child's body. The coat can be shrunk via the buttons and tubing to create the opposite conflict of an adult in child's clothing. This subtle tension, as well as the materials used, are a poetic interpretation of the unimaginably unjust world that many children around the world are forced into.

Description

The design of this coat is not only special because of the way it can change size and shape, but because of what this change represents. Products have material and immaterial value, and we were incredibly moved by Feifei Yang’s attempt to raise awareness of this issue. Although fashion can often seem shallow, it can also be poetic and meaningful. We truly hope that we can not only make you look good but feel good too!

Here are some of the images that inspired Feifei Yang to design a collection that will hopefully bring light to this international issue:

This coat is, appropriately, one-size-fits-all.

Chest: 61cm
Length: 100cm
Shoulder: 51cm
Sleeve: 80cm
Material: Polyester
Color: Olive

If you’ve made it this far, we thank you for your attention to this issue. If you don’t intend to purchase this item, we would still appreciate your support in sharing with others who may.
