We love the message of this social commentary piece by contemporary artist Michael Namingha! I mean, really....how dare we, right? Namingha shows his New York educated design sense with his choice of shimmery gunmetal grey on black for an elegant, minimalist presentation. The restrained color and contrast just adds to the quiet punch of the tongue in cheek, but hard-hitting statement.
Wouldn't you love to start a few conversations when you wear this coat to an art opening or special event? We guarantee you'll generate smiles– and ruffle a feather or two– in this one over basic black with a single contemporary silver necklace and cuff bracelet. Stand your ground with "Speculation" and spawn some ideas for our "me too" world.
Black tuxedo silk

Panel on backside: "Nothing provokes
more speculation than the sight
of a woman enjoying herself." Michael Namingha's Bio
