Fashion Film ‘The Skin I Live In’ Finds Inspo In 1940’s Surgical Scrubs

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.
