Nick Cave tailors suits that are sculpture, clothing characters that spring out of his imagination. Stately guardians preside in shaggy, day-glow pink hair; polar bears wear sweaters that stick out in humorous places; and dancers are adorned with white beaded filigree crowns. Suits like this have never been seen before. Partly this is due to his choice of improbable materials—buttons, plastic tabs, hot pads, metal flowers, sandwich bags, spinning tops and crocheted doilies—which are used to make visually fierce and impeccably detailed suits. Multiple media installations remind us of the desire for these wearable sculptures to move and perform. Photographs of Nick Cave alone and a posse mixing it up in a massive street party show off how playful and unexpected his suits can be.

Should you love this work, Nick cave also sells his designs as wrapping paper and refrigerator magnets at lSoundSuitShop
