My submission for the Whitechapel REMAKE/REMODEL: THE GODDAM COUTURE BATMAN: [link]
Letís do something pure and redesigny.
2012. Bruce Wayne realises his relentless crusade against the superstitious and cowardly criminal classes has left him totally bankrupt. Luckily heís spent 30 years creating outrageously fetishy costumes for his own use, and has hence accidentally become the worldís foremost sartorial designer.
Once upon a time he fell down a hole, saw a bat, blubbed like a baby, then decided to go kick ass while sporting pointy ears. Now heís going to rebuild his fortune on the catwalks of Milan using the same winged-rat, utility-belted, caped-bondage-goon vibe in his amazing frou-frou couture ensembles.
You will bring the Fashion. You will bring me the mighty centrepiece of the BrŁs/W?n Studio Collection, and god help the poor model stuck inside the thing if he/she canít move well enough to beat up some criminals while sashaying.
