CIRQUE DE MERDE AW18 - "I Want To Leave" editorial 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.
The Supreme Being has landed! The I Want To Leave Jacket is the jacket to end all jackets. The jacket that the Official Supreme Being Queen purchased and sports all over the universe! Nothing will prepare you for the sheer awesomeness of this piece. It’s unbelievably fabulous and Over the Top. The only jacket to get you not only taken away but sitting right next to the Supreme Being on the universal throne!
Ok let’s go. What doesn’t the I Want To Leave jacket have?! Let’s start simple and then get outrageous. This jacket is a fully lined handmade faux fur jacket. It features the velvet short black faux fur as the main with Gothic PVC double layered frills on the cuffs and hem. These frills each have x3 layers of ruched tulle. Basically Gothic Clown ruffles for days… We could stop right there and this jacket would be ridiculous. But wait, there’s more… Speaking of tulle, this jacket sports the Collection Statement Frill Neck Lizard OTT Extravaganza along the shoulderline. From the front it’s like a tulle wall and from the back it is a mass of fun layered clown colour. Casual…. NOT! The I Want To Leave jacket features the official #teamalien motif on the back and a very secret “I WANT TO LEAVE” written detail in contrast brown faux fur along the bottom hem. Finally the jacket has a lovely stand collar and of course inseam pockets. Wooaahhh… detail heavy… I’m exhausted just from writing the details, let alone making it for your Gun Shy pleasure!
Details can be customised to suit. There are colour options for the You can tulle frills
