“ARMY” Jacket

“ARMY JACKET” made out of 3 different Vietnam era military duffel bags. 12 pockets are featured on this jacket while four are removable. the bags were used for grenades, knifes and different kinds of ammunition. this jacket is also wearable as a backpack with straps from a military parachute (inspiration from early Helmut lang jackets). each panel of this jacket features different colors and different distressing throughout the whole piece and this shows that each bag used for this garment was apart of someone’s life and each person used these bags differently. i was fortunate enough to use these bags in a different way of how they were previously used and reuse a item that hasn’t been used in 30+ years.
