CIRQUE DE MERDE AW18 - "Circus of Shit" 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.
Roll up, roll up… Come and see the shittest show on earth – the Circus of Shit! The evil orange clowns have taken over with an agenda of destruction, racism, fear, divide and conquer. … Booo!!! At this Circus you are supplied with rotten tomatoes and you can throw them directly at the evil doers.
The Circus of Shit jacket will protect you though. This jacket is a deluxe wrap around jacket inspired by Goths & Bozo the Clown. This Uber Cool jacket is dripping with quirky details. All black with the beautiful short velvet faux fur as the main, black fox and black PVC for details. It wouldn’t be a Goth jacket without PVC. The jacket features an extra long lapel in black fox and #teamalien head motif on the back. The motif is perfectly placed so that when belted with the gorgeous black fur belt you don’t lose any of the details. The clown inspiration flows through in the extra long sleeves with x3 arm openings. 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. The cuff is then highlighted with a black PVC frill. The Circus of Shit jacket comes with the extra long Faux Fur belt but the jacket looks heaven with or without it, and can also be styled to perfection with different belts. Worn with the belt, the Circus of Shit 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 Circus of Shit is fully lined with inseam pockets and features the signature "I WANT TO LEAVE" badge on the lapel.
Details can be customised to suit.
