ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the Defense Mechanism Coat, bristling with 150 pounds of roofing nails, designed by fashion designer Kate Kretz. Painstakingly inserted by the artist and an assistant into a found woolen coat over the course of three months, the nails protect a soft, vulnerable interior that tells a very different story. Made of flesh-colored velvet, the lining is covered with a hand-embroidered tracery of veins and arteries reflecting the major blood vessels of the human body. The lining invites the viewer inside, with whispered promises of warmth and comfort.
