Inspiration: I have always been obsessed with Junji Ito's manga. Those horror manga are so innovation and inspiring. They always carry crazy ideas I have never thought of. Somehow my jacket project reminded me his ideas. Actually my jacket is from a vintage market. My jacket is literally 60 years old. To depart a 60-year-old thing seemed to be very daunting to me. I didn't know who wore it and what was inside this mysterious jacket. I was thinking about Junji Ito's horror manga at that time. That's how I got inspired.
Moreover, the structure and the tubes of the walking machine in Ito's Gyo inspired me to build a similar structure on my jacket.
