Meet the jacket that has a story to tell. This is a limited edition piece from Tomer Peretz’s “War Is Over” collection that pushes the boundaries of what is considered politically correct. With pure honesty and good fun, it exudes an edge that is both authentic and unapologetic. But what sets this jacket apart is that it was created from materials that were used during the war.
The artist behind this unique creation had a vision to turn military jackets into fashion, signifying the end of conflict and the desire for peace. Inspiration for this project also came from the artist’s inclination to connect their art with technology, so he collaborated with a start-up company to plant a chip inside each jacket which will enable the buyer to own the piece as a Crypto Art. This will also authenticate the jacket and track its history when passed on to others.
Each one-of-a-kind jacket in this collection features an extension of wool or denim that has been used on other jackets in the past, both inside and outside the jacket. This adds an extra layer of warmth and style to the jacket, making it perfect for colder weather. To add an extra touch of personality to these jackets, the artist has also added studs, adding a touch of edgy style to the military aesthetic.
The jacket’s tight weave and chemical treatment make it windproof and water resistant as well, ensuring that it will protect you from the elements in any situation. The OG-107 design, complete with an aluminum zipper reminiscent of the M-51, adds a touch of vintage appeal to these unisex jackets.
It is an honest representation of the designer’s personal style and beliefs and is sure to be a conversation starter. Despite its serious undertones, the jacket is also a lot of fun to wear and highly fashionable. Its unique design and attention to detail are the result of the artist’s meticulous painting of each garment. It is a real, tangible piece of wearable art, made from prime materials that are meant to last which radically stands out in a sea of mass-produced clothing.
Sustainability was also a key focus for the artist, who wanted to utilize materials that already exist rather than create new ones. By repurposing these materials, the jacket not only tells a story of war and its closure but also promotes the idea of no more war.
