LIMITED EDITION ‘ART COUTURE’
‘Faux knitting’ swing coats
These swing coats are printed with multiple photographs of a range of iconic knitted portraits. Every stitch is clearly visible giving the illusion that the garments are knitted: ‘faux knitting’. The fabric, called ‘funk’, is a light polyester jersey which hangs beautifully, is machine washable and requires very little ironing, if any. It also enables faithful reproduction of a range of vibrant colors.
This swing coat features a checkerboard of knitted Lou Reed images, alternately positive and negative, based on the cover of his Transformer (1972) album cover, photographed and printed onto the fabric. When the front bands sit together they form complete faces.
