This motley wig was designed by the Bless duo and is made from a recycled fur coat. Special models in light and dark, short and long-haired fur were made for Maison Martin Margiela. These wigs were launched as accessories for the Stockman Collection (autumn/winter 1997) and were worn by the models at the catwalk show. This fur object that functions as a wig creates a strange analogy between animal hair, clothes, human hair and accessory.
