I’ve always been drawn to worker apparel, especially paint-spattered trousers. These women had been painting at the Vancouver Art Gallery – the walls, I believe. The woman, right, said it took about a year to get her pants to this point (detail below). She also painted her runners pink and weathered them with work – walking abstract expressionism. I asked if they would ever wear these trousers as style choices: one said only if there was nothing else available and the other said no because they are associated too closely with work. I’m currently splattering my own pants to wear on the street with heels.
