'Hatatose' means 'Twenty Years' in Japanese. This collection was created to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of my favorite band, Access. They are an awesome mix of j-pop and techno, and the colors and symbols used in the collection were inspired by their latest album, Secret Cluster.
This started out as a plain black t-shirt. I widened the neckline, shredded one sleeve and cut a circle in the other. I finished the neckline and the non-shredded sleeve with a clean double seam, added studded straps, and painted it gold, starting with thicker lines at the hem and thinning them out as I went up the shirt. The paint and studs on the shirt have been heat set for maximum durability. If properly taken care of the paint should not fade and the studs should stay put.
