There is a whole twitching pile of conceptualization going into the Sruli Recht Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

Inside things are very intense, with waxed cotton, leather and silk beside Icelandic reindeer and horse skin. The most interesting element, however, has to be something called Lamb-coated Aluminium. “Before departing, the lamb is placed partly submerged in a tank, where through scientific application the aluminium, like adamantium, is fused between the first few layers of the epidermis,” we are told … and holy fuck. They are injecting lambs’ flesh with aluminum, Wolverine Project X-style, seconds before the poor creatures depart the mortal coil? Three words: BLACK METAL SERFWEAR.
