Fashion has gone to such extremes at the end of the millennium that designing something truly shocking practically requires an electrical socket and a bucket of water. In all the hoopla, the three-armed jacket stands out as the biggest fashion joke of them all, the most obvious example of the lengths to which some designers will go to make us sit up and take notice. Dutch designer Niels Klavers has created a jacket with multiple sleeves—his had four. He has also made three-legged pants, a four-armed sweater, and a coatdress colonised front and back by two identical coatdresses. And Klavers has done these things in all sincerity, with a straight face. “I do this work very seriously,” he says. “I don’t laugh about it. I’m not making fun with it.”
