semidisposable smoking jacket
Featuring a pattern of Ziploc containers printed in gold on resplendent fabric, this top-flight smoking jacket is worthy of even the most prepossessing 007 art-school hipster playboy. Recall the so-called “semidisposable” plastic Ziploc container, useful enough to keep without “hoarding,” cheap enough to discard without guilt, and thus indistinguishable from that which it contains. Re-figuring the Ziploc’s purposes—to contain, to preserve—this garment whispers the uncomfortable proposition that we, too, are more than a little bit semidisposable ourselves.
