Holy Bat Wing, Batman!!

This photo was taken at an art gallery opening in New York City last Friday. A good friend of mine designed the catalog for the exhibition and I was invited to attend the opening and reception.

The woman in this photo was wearing a very interesting winter jacket. It has a pair of straps attached to the inside that can be worn over the shoulders like a backpack. That way, the woman does not have to carry the jacket in her hands when she is not wearing it.

She told me it is a club kid jacket. I have never heard of the term. Have you seen this kind of jacket before?

I haven't heard of this jacket either! Hey....thanks for the visit and comments. I don't get very many visitors, so I appreciate every person who takes the time to stop by and make a comment. Blessings!

As a matter of fact, yes I have. A friend of mine has a jacket exactly like this. I don't know where she bought it (not in Greece I think) but I was also impressed when I first saw it.

Greetings from Athens, thanks for your visit.

Well it is a jacket that makes a lot of sense to me. Very good idea and the photograph is nice too.

Good idea. Less hassle to bring along a jacket in the future, esp. when it's cold outside and when you enter a cafe/shopping area indoors to eat or to shop and need to remove that jacket (since it'll be too warm)!

Helmut Lang used to do these all the time when he was still designing.
