Michael Squat Socks
I found it inspiring when Billie came out and said the reason she wears baggy clothes is because she doesn’t want to be objectified and to be purely judged on her music ability and not her body, this jacket is the embodiment of that message by not only being baggy but also having quotes taken from her various interviews on the subject on the front of the jacket. The back is a painting based on the juxtaposition of living in a world where men are objectified using her favourite TV character, Michael Scott, as the subject.
My message as an artist is all about challenging convention which I think Billie is doing in abundance with her music but also her take on societal norms and that’s why I felt compelled to make a jacket that pokes fun at the hypocrisy of objectification which I believe will make a photo of her wearing it travel far on social and help start discussions on this serious topic with the addition of a secret AR message when it’s scanned
