Inspired by the heroic tale of Joan of Arc, this jacket and corset pull influence from the structured, architectural lines of suits of armor. Made from recycled bicycle tubes and cardboard, these materials are transformed from simple utilitarian objects into an exquisite piece of armor just as Joan of Arc transformed from a simple peasant into the savior of a nation.

 

Materials: rubber bicycle tubes, wool, blue silk, cardboard, metal hardware
