3. Richard Nicoll Fall/Winter 2009 & Comme Comme Spring/Summer 2011
5. American Psycho, 2000

Don't ask me why but I am still researching, archiving and assembling reference images picturing the use of clear plastic in fashion. One might call it obsession, I'd like to see it more as a tribute to an underexposed brilliancy.
P.S.: The original plastic raincoat from Blade Runner sold for $1,600.00 on ebay.
