This pink J-shaped body bag is a part of Sarah Kissell's 'Still Remains' exhibition, which honors Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The pastel pink color and Chanel lining are meant to evoke Jackie O's iconic Chanel suit.

It's tough to make a body bag look somewhat attractive, but Sarah Kissell's version for 'Still Remains' is about the closest I suspect one can get.

"In producing and curating this multi-disciplinary project, my objective is to serve as a contemporary voice to our nation's ongoing struggle of a national identity," says Kissell. "Furthermore, this body bag is meant to serve as a symbol of cultural preservation."

Implications - Although Jackie O has been dead for quite some time, her elegance and iconic status still influence creatives in every industry.
