(Right figure) What could once only have seemed to be Miss Havisham's ruined raiment is the pointedly distressed version of a sweater elongated and eviscerated by Yamamoto. As it balances a clothing standard and its disarray, so the "deconstructed" sweater-dress equivocates among the seasons and could justly serve in any season. (Shown with 1994.9.3 by Jean Paul Gaultier.)
