Sander Reijgers Transforms Vulgar into Wearable Art

Sander Reijgers’ view of wearable art is extreme because his source of creativity stems from blow-up dolls. Yep, you know, that kind. He customizes ordinary tracksuits and hoodies by embellishing them with parts of the dolls. Heads, faces, breasts and so on. If you look carefully at the photos, he spares no parts of the doll’s anatomy.

The designer says, “These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else.”

He definitely doesn’t think his work is coarse or vulgar as people do wear his jackets.
