Dutch artist Parra has just released his Spring 2016 collection of clothing, and I'm not going to lie; it's pretty weird. Corduroy is back apparently, being used in Parra's newest jacket. Most of the collection features either a pin or an embroidery of an orange with voluptuous lady legs propelling it forward and an arrow sticking out of its back. The highlight for me is the lining of the corduroy jacket, which features a sketch of a woman with an arrow piercing her back and through her heart. On the left breast of the lining, the phrase "Shot through the heart" is scrawled. Badass.
