Stay warm with the Si Chan 'Hug Me' Collection. The UK-based menswear designer Si Chan filled his Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection with an abundance of humor. Chan created a line of mens coats that embrace the wearer, metaphorically and literally, by using hands as a key point of the design.

Inspired by the notion that there is lost human contact and connection, Chan's designs provide a solution to the feeling of loneliness. Each colorful design features a surplus of interlocking gloves to recreate the feeling of being hugged, since everybody needs a little love.

According to his website, Chan believes that, "interaction and communication are the action to express love and depart from loneliness between human beings. 'Hands' are a very figurative object to express this abstract idea."
