At Design Boom, we stumbled on an art installation called Third Eye by the band, the Krrrrr, and artist Anya Muangkote. Barbarians that we can be, we couldn’t really wrap our heads around the art, but are smitten with the paint-splattered jumpsuits. Now there’s a swell outfit that would also be quite thrilling to make.
We still love wearing the bright blue street-cleaners jumpsuit we hunted down in Paris 25 years ago.
We went over to Amazon to what they had in the way of white jumpsuits —called coveralls there — and found a nice white cotton/poly version that also comes in 8 other covers. But our favorites are these stylish cotton coveralls in all sorts of hot colors EXCEPT white. Dig this orange one (swell UNpainted):
We delved into Improvised Life’s archive to look up fabric paints. There’s a lot of info here. We also found a pack of five colors would be ready to go with no further ado. Be sure to flang your paint outside or on a big canvas dropcloth (which will become nicely paint-splattered and a wonderful to cover a sofa.)
