1000 PIECES: SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED is a wearable art coat incorporating approximately 1000 removable pieces that may be assembled to create a variety of surface designs. The concept is based on a jigsaw puzzle. The aesthetic inspiration came from ancient Chinese armor composed of small metal scales decoratively arranged and affixed to a background fabric. The coat is designed especially for those who enjoy assembling a jigsaw puzzle or creating their own unique designs.
