There is a place in my heart for the beauty of Pelle Pelle jackets. Do you remember them? In Chicago, the popularity of the jackets and people hold a "has been" attitude to people that still wear them. I don't understand that, as the jackets still hold there value, Pelle Pelle is still very much in business and the coats are beautiful.
I was asked to participate in the Petty Biennial an exhibition curated by Sadie Woods and LaKeisha Leek. I thought that this would be the perfect time for me to bring my love and research of Pelle Pelle to life an honor some men who still are wearing these jackets.
