James Teng!

Based on the form of traditional asian rainwear, James Teng  wove his personal memories and imaginations into a series of handcrafted 'rainwear'.

Instead of protecting us from the rain, these capes simulate sensorial and emotional memories of rain: Silver-coloured thread incorporated into the fabric re-creates the reflection of light in raindrops; overlapping shingles of wood and clear plastic rattle when worn, like rain hitting a rooftop; and thick, soft mohair adds a mellow, water-like weight.
