Abstract:  So while I was in the search for an article that could possibly relate to our zero waste lecture – I came across this new fall/winter wear and was so amused. If you’re single, love bright colors, and don’t want to spend the winter alone – then purchase this $1,200 parka today! Upcoming menswear designer Si Chan designed this eccentric green puffer jacket with clasped hands on the front so the wearer would feel loved, warm, and hugged! The plushness of the jacket is suppose to remind you of stuffed toys. The jacket came from an inspiration of his childhood days being hugged by his older brother (as seen in the photograph above). Would you wear this jacket? I think I would (just once) to see the reactions from others!
