Created in collaboration with John Galliano for Maison Margiela, black tulle lining from inside the white trench coat escapes from the back seam, flowing around the body to reveal an intricately formed face. Constructed via the process of hand-sewing, the piece floats over the trench coat so as to move independently. The piece took over 300 hours to make over the course of several months before being shown at Paris Couture Fashion Week. The piece has been purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
