CIRQUE DE MERDE AW18 - "Bozo Shit Storm" jacket
The CIRQUE DE MERDE Collection is a delicious androgynous OTT Goth Pop Alien/Clown Collection!!!! WTF you say. Yes, we are saying that too…..
The clowns have taken over the world and the only viable option is to be abducted by aliens. So here at Gun Shy we have created the perfect jackets to impress these Supreme Superior Beings above. One must dress to impress in order to increase your chances of alien abduction.
When the Bozo Shit Storm hits town all you have to do is wrap yourself in this furious jacket, look to the Heavens and scream "I WANT TO LEAVE!" Following this, immediate abduction is imminent - so you had better be ready. Lucky you'll be in your Bozo Shit Storm - Cirque De Merde Collection - Gun Shy Jacket which has the Official Universal Alien stamp of approval. This stamp enables all universal travel - It's like a diplomatic passport really. Are you Ready?
The Bozo Shit Storm was inspired by Bozo the Clown and hence it has some super cute, funny and quirky details, while still maintaining the Cirque De Merde and Gun Shy unique style. This jacket is oversized to capture the feel of an extra large exaggerated Clown suit. The wrap around Bozo Shit Storm jacket, made in the deluxe short velvet black faux fur, has a ridiculous amount of arm hole openings - x3!! One at the top - so you can wear it like a vest, a secret cape sleeve in the arm and then an opening at the end of the extra long clown style sleeve. If worn this way there is a comical yet stylish amount of gather on the sleeve. This is then highlighted with a touch of the clown tulle frill, which is a signature of the Collection. The Bozo Shit Storm has an extra long lapel, which almost goes to the hemline. Why not? Exaggerated looks are what the Aliens are looking for. You are not going to get abducted or be a chosen one being a basic bitch are you? Worn with the Gun Shy faux fur belt, the Bozo Shit Storm takes on a complete other feel. Faux fur cinched at the waist with volumes to play with. This jacket is only limited by the imagination of the wearer. As usual, the Bozo Shit Storm is fully lined with inseam pockets and features the signature "I WANT TO LEAVE" badge on the lapel.
Details can be customised to suit. There are colour options for the tulle on the cuff.
