“Virginia Creeper” Hoodie
AW2002



DESCRIPTION

The Virginia Creeper hoodie juxtaposes the two and draws parallels between them. Garments from this collection were specially treated with chemicalwashes. This hoodie was dyed several times and treated with an acid wash to create a weathered effect that would corrode overtime. The Virginia Creeper graphic on the front is done in a collegiate school font with the scientific term for the plant, Parthenocissus quinquefolia.

Good condition. Please see photos for full evaluation.

COVERAGE

Raf Simon's AW2002 collection aimed to explore the duality of man and nature, illustrated by its reference to the pest plant "Virginia Creeper," which kills other plants around the human-made structures they frequent. When strictly examining the formal nature of the produced garments, one may think the collection was a study on American school uniforms or summer camp attire under the lens of 80s horror flicks; they would be right. The horror aesthetic was further illustrated by the natural distressing of the silhouettes caused by a chemical treatment that eats away at the fabric induced by the wearer's body heat over time.
