BLACK SOUVENIR BOMBER JACKET WITH SKULL EMBROIDERY AND EMBROIDERY ON THE CHEST IN POLYESTER

As is the case with many sartorial icons, the Souvenir jacket is an item of clothing that has evolved beyond its cultural origins and become part of our popular culture . This very particular style of embroidery was originally created for American GIs to bring home as souvenir jackets, after the post-war occupation of Japan , from which the name of the garment originated.

Since then, Souvenir jackets have appeared countless times in movies, on fashion shows and continue to serve as an iconic representation of the rebellion to the present day.

Besides the embroidered designs themselves, this style of jacket is defined by its cut, which is similar to a classic American baseball jacket . This style was adopted by working-class youth and also became a symbol of rebellion in Japan after the war. For the Japanese bourgeoisie, the jacket had negative connotations, especially as a symbol of the links between gangs and delinquency.

This embroidery is a metaphor on existence and the human condition. Clinically, we mean by death the state that sets in when our heart stops beating . Blood circulation stops, we stop breathing, our brain stops, and this is what divides the states we occupy from one moment (alive) to another (dead). But philosophically, our definition of death rests on something else: the point beyond which we can no longer return. Are you alive ?
