"Your body is your own to name and map," Bug 2015

This piece is about queer and trans reclaimation of bodies. An attack on the dominant narrative that ties understandings of ourselves to the genders we were assigned. It’s about personal autonomy and creating new, powerful, beautiful and real understandings of ourselves.

Patch Perfect

Quirky cool patchwork has never looked so good

The embroidered patch look popularized by soldiers and specialized groups decades ago has since become a way to make a fashion statement among today’s top tastemakers. Denim bedecked with floral iron-ons and sweatshirts emblazoned with witty badges are the new norm for girls who covet that ‘cut and paste’ style. Now you can get that DIY look from cool-kid brands like Thierry Boutemy and Stella McCartney, whose eclectic collections show off a mélange of patches and prints. Bring out your scrappy side with an assortment of collage-like clothing and accessories that are guaranteed to put you in a good mood.
