Fall Fashion: Nick Cave’s Soundsuits

August 28, 2010 § 1 Comment


Hats off to this Vogue’s September issue. The magazine put together pursesĀ  and Nick Cave’s soundsuits in a great-looking fashion photo essay. Chicago-based artist Nick Cave (not to be confused with the Australian musician of the same name) is an Alvin Ailey-trained dancer and posed for the photos wearing some of his most theatrical and surreal sound sculptures.
Raised by a single mother, Nick inherited most of his clothes from the elder of his six brothers. Re-fashioning them with objects found around the house was the starting point for these pieces.

Unfortunately you can’t see the photos online – go buy the magazine and get some extra 790 pages of fashion.


Ah, I wonder what the Sartorialist would say about these suits…

Ceremonial dance costumes or playful stuffed animals?
