“The beauty of the world is the mouth of a labyrinth. The unwary individual who on entering takes a few steps is soon unable to find the opening. Worn out, with nothing to eat or drink, in the dark, separated from his dear ones, and from everything he loves and is accustomed to, he walks on without knowing anything or hoping anything, incapable even of discovering whether he is really going forward or merely turning round on the same spot. But this affliction is as nothing compared with the danger threatening him. For if he does not lose courage, if he goes on walking, it is absolutely certain that he will finally arrive at the center of the labyrinth. And there God is waiting to eat him. Later he will go out again, but he will be changed, he will have become different, after being eaten and digested by God. Afterward he will stay near the entrance so that he can gently push all those who come near into the opening.” - Simone Weil “The beauty of the world is the mouth of a labyrinth.

Y2K MARITHÉ FRANÇOIS GIRBAUD DENIM JACKET

Marithé and François Girbaud have created fashion that emanates from the street; reveling in design problems of cylinders, mutation, and reversibility; and bringing high-style aspirations to casual materials and effects. Their proclivity to oversizing seems akin to Japanese design and Middle Eastern and East Asian peasant garb, as their futurist vocabulary of tubes and metamorphosis can seem a highly conceptual eventuality worthy of Marinetti or Balla, but also functions as fluid streetwear. Their deconstructivist bent, exposing the elements of garment manufacture, parallels Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, but their medium is a more accessible casual wear—almost hip-hop homeboy style in New York or the carefree flair of a weekend in Paris. In the casual jeans-based look the Girbauds have created and recreated, they have consistently been the most innovative, experimental, concept-driven designers.

Offered here is a denim jacket with exposed zig zag stitching, great stitched details around the face of the jacket, and an embroidered logo on the arm in red. Cut comes comes in at the bust area for a very form fitting look.
