The look is inspired by DC comic book villains.
The handknit coat and multi-jacquard dress and corset are paired with nail gloves.
The chunky coat is handknit with an entrelac technique and has detachable sleeves.
Fishtail dress and colorful corset were created by jacquards designed and programmed by Jennifer Chi.
The Joker graphic on the coat was created by artist Ryan Sook, in the style of Frank Miller,
to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Joker’s comic book debut.
Handknit gloves, in contrasting jersey/purl stitches, are adorned with applique fake nails
that are decorated with nail charms consisting of flowers and cartoons.
The Joker jacquard on the dress and corset are reinterpreted versions of artist Ryan Sook’s Joker face.
The skirt panels of the dress can be rearranged to the wearer’s preference.
The corset is a collage of knit-downs created during the beginning of the design process.
The corset is laced in the back with a green ribbon.
The skirt panels consist of a Joker-face jacquard and sheer PVC vinyl panels.
Skirt panels are attached together with chains and rings.
The order of the panels can be mixed and matched or removed to transform into a short dress.
The dress’s jacquard is an original geometric pattern created by Jennifer Chi and has a side-opening detail.
Skirt panels are attached with chains and can be removed to be mix-and-matched.
