The jacket reminds me of old America and how men wear striped suits with boater hats and had this very dandy flair. I like the idea of taking this past inspiration and turning it into something new and exciting. Custodio deconstructed the basic men's suit and made it into a dramatic semi cape with trailing fabric sashes coming from a continuous pattern without seams. Very couturelike. There is also fabric tucked inside so when its pulled out the jacket becomes an overlapping coat. I opted to keep it tucked in because we took this shot under a time crunch. Maybe next time ill do another shot of it. What is also incredible about this jacket is the fabric. At first glance it looks like cotton jersey striped fabric but what people don't know is when you reverse it the backing reveals the fabric to be faux leather. Incredible piece of work both in its construction and fabrication. Thats what I call a reinventing the classics.

p.s. a friend told me the outfit resembles the character from Dc Comics "Hawk" from "Hawk and Dove". Actually!:) All i need is some mask then I'm off to crimefighting:)

Mygosh the jacket and the jeans are so gorgeous! Even the bow is sweet. This is too perfect! <3

Amazing lines on the jacket,definitely do see the vintage dapper vibe,but the pleats and folds remind me of origami on rich paper,or the folds of kimonos in ancient Heian art. And the bow is such a sweet touch!
Andre Judd
Thank you Selle. I love your comments:) very heartwarming to know someone appreciates fashion the way you do:)!
Selle M
Aww hun if you saw my looks you'll see I'm not that fashionable at all,I guess I just really appreciate art.And the way I see it you really do know how to create art with clothes,something not too many have the eye,discipline and guts to do!
