Title:

The Shortcut to the Systematic Life: I Am Fine, I Do Not Get Wet.

Author: Tsui Kuang-Yu
Description:

Here, the idea of ‘mimicry’ becomes the absolute reliance and insistence on the value of appearance—including the waterproof quality. To adapt to the heavy rains in Taiwan, I custom made a few raincoats in formal dress styles. These waterproof surfaces are not only practical but also good-looking. One could be totally soaked, yet still maintain a decent appearance.
