Jacket = 103 hours

November 7th, 2006

margiela.jpgThis is not your average winter jacket, this one is by Maison Martin Margiela Artisanal and is made of ski gloves. It takes 103 hours to create one and costs $15,124. Unique.

Ski gloves are used as the raw material to create a blouson with or without sleeves.
Over dyed in dark colours the gloves are unstitched and laid flat so that all original detailing may remain intact and they may be assembled directly on a black cotton base prepared on a tailor’s dummy. Two inserted pockets are added to the front of each blouson.
