It all started from a romantic story about a pink cape that was used as a camouflage for the British army unit of the LRDG. It was used in specific hours of the day that were also the most dangerous ones - sunrise and sunset. This story turns out to be fiction, certain theories claim that a collector from the 80's was given a batch of these anti-gas capes, cleaned, bleached and presented them with this romantic cover story to make them more attractive.

The inspiration for this project came from the original anti-gas cape functionality, as well from the fiction story. In the 3D design I took inspiration from the ventilation holes, that were located in the under arm area of the cape, together with the amorphic shape of the camouflage pattern. The fabric manipulations I did were also inspired from the camouflage pattern.
