INSA X Evisu

Over the past month or so, I have been working with Evisu on their 20th year anniversary exhibition titled "Make The Rules".
A number of established artist contributed various pieces of art work for the mile stone exhibition. One of the particular artists involved was main man, INSA who created this wire frame and custom made denim play suit titled the "Button Down, Back Up"
With that said I will allow INSA himself to tell you about his creation.


This fully custom made denim playsuit is crafted from authentic Evisu selvedge Japanese denim. Hand bleach printed with my classic ‘Graffiti Fetish’ pattern. Double stitched, double layered denim construction, steel buttons and whale boning give this delicate feminine form the strength, toughness and durability of any serious piece of workwear.




I worked with the amazing garment specialist Miss Melody MaKer to produce this one off. Even though this is a piece of art to be admired in its own right, a piece of denim desire that does not need to be worn, it has been tailor made to fit one person and one person only, rapper and role model Miss Nicki Minaj with the slightly unbelievable measurements of 36-24-45.

I worked closely with my good friends at JAIL MAKE Studios who hand forged and welded this rigid steel framework, that is then mounted on steel rods that are sunk deep into a thick oak heart shaped base.
