This colourful piece of textile easily transforms into a coat of your choosing. All you need is a pair of scissors. Vera de Pont has eliminated the time-consuming sewing process with five designs that pop into shape when you put them on – no seams needed. Simply cut out the pattern of your favourite design and your coat is ready to wear. The use of melting yarn prevents the fabric from fraying. There’s a silkscreened and a woven version, the latter even has double-sided patterns. Take your pick, cut out your coat and make a new fashion statement!
