Fashion designer Si Ieong Chan has created Hug Me, a Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection of men’s outerwear that includes a green puffy jacket with five sets of interlocking hands, a pink gingham suit with wrapping/grabbing hands and more. The line is meant “to express how the (dis) connection between people to people and the loneliness…” More images of the collection are available at Chan’s website.
In order to make people feel warm and hugged, some of the clothes would be padding and the hands (gloves) would be adding wad to make it looks puffy as childish soft toys. Some pieces are also to keep repeating a certain part (For example, sleeves) to make people feeling full and not alone or enlarge the scale by magnifying a certain part on clothes, which makes people feel a sense of relief.????
Everybody needs love, Don’t you?
