Brother Slayer Vest is hand-embroidered linen vest.

If needed, you can lend Dusty’s Linen Dress or Linen Jumpsuit (as seen in photo) to go together with the vest.

Brother Slayer Vest has countless layers of meanings.

In 1996 Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet was breath-taking and Tybalt Capulet’s ‘Jesus vest’ was absolutely mind-blowing (google if you can’t picture it). The vest made me think that is something I could do and I should do.

Idea of the vest haunted me for years. I wanted to depict something as iconic as Jesus but something that would derive from my own cultural heritage.

Then I knew: Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s painting Velisurmaaja (Brother Slayer) from 1897 is based on a traditional Finnish poem metaphorically telling about the end of the world. Young man with a bloody sword, mother in despair, painted on a robust canvas with heavy brush strokes.

I took the waistcoat pattern and smocking detail on the back from traditional Finnish folk costume. Embroidering the painting took me 4 working days. It wasn’t only the amount of handwork but I needed to have a right mood to capture that certain look in his eyes. The little red stitch in the corner of his eye was the final touch.
