STORYLINE

Design by Raf Reyes: an anti-hero is a central character in a stVRy, film or drama who lacks conventional heroic attributes. ⚔️ 🧩 Very close to the concept of “underdog”, he/she is largerly expected to lose and hence an “underdog bet” is a bet on the outsider, for which the odds are unlikely and more risky 🏴‍☠️ At the dawn of his turbulent life, Caravaggio, tired of escaping and discouraged by the death sentence that still hangs on his head,  painted his famous David with the head of Goliath. The treats of Goliath’s head are very similar to Caravaggio’s ~ old, suffering, w/ an image of abandonment. Instead, David is compassionate and pitiful, violence being completely absent from his face… 🤯 I can’t help but interpret David as a self-portrait of a young Caravaggio, still pure, erasing his old & sinful version of self → through the decapitation ⌛️⏳  On the sword you can read the letters “H-AS OS”, from the Augustinian motto “Humilitas Occidit Superbiam“, Humility Kills Pride (a very rare motto).

SIZE GUIDE & INSTRUCTIONS


• Even though the garment may differ from the model below, well it’s the same sizing (as in, we’re using the same size chart for both)

• True size or slightly oversized look recommended. Unisex garment.

• As the faux-fur is taking quite some space under the outter layer, don’t hesitate to go for bigger sizes if you want a true oversized look.

• Machine wash cold. Do not machine dry.
