Sometimes for no reason I am afraid of everything and everyone, but I’m sure that when I wear things I love, especially things I’ve made, I feel 30% less terrified. This is a vest that I’m making to protect myself against everything; the patch is screen printed.
In this video of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing the song Soft Shock live Karen O wears robes made by Christian Joy. Karen O is known for looking really happy and excited when she performs. I feel like in this case especially what she wears is a big part of her stage persona. I love the idea that the vest that she’s wearing helps her perform. If objects can make you brave then that’s good because you can control it.
