Ever wonder what it would be like to dress in 1940’s surgeon scrubs? Well, in Kristina Lapickaja’s fashion film above, featuring her ‘The Skin I Live In’ AW/15 collection, you get to see a hint of what that would look like, but in leather + bandage fabric. With the shape of the sleeves + closure detailing of the outerwear, similar to those found with surgical scrubs, one can see how this collection’s inspiration came from plastic surgery + its aesthetics.
You get to see leather strip detail, sewn together, to create a jacket, while bandage fabric hangs like an uneven fringe on a skirt. The closure detailing includes tie strips of patent leather, along the side of patent leather pants + the back of sleeves. Zippers also play a major role throughout the collection, not only for their intended purpose, but rather, representing that metal element in a surgical procedure.
