This jacket designed by Martin Margiela took over 103 hours to make, all from ski gloves (I bet it’s really warm!)… – “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.” [via] – Link.

It looks like a still suit from Dune. I see boxes of old discarded gloves all the time, might be neat to make a wool version, a leather work glove version…
