Giving up on the stresses of modern life, designer Thomas Thwaites decided to become a goat. He then voyaged into the Alps to cross the mountains with a herd of his fellow creatures.
“One of the things about billy goats is their beard,” Thwaites told NPR, “and they actually try and make their beard as smelly as possible because that’s a sort of attractive thing to female goats. And so I think this goat was sort of trying to work out what type of goat was I? … Weirdly, I think we became friends in the platonic sense.”
