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 :
