In a black and white story wherein the prints are CGI enhanced images of seagulls, Richard Bach’s short story ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ also came to mind, which by the way also about struggle, though in a more philosophical nature.

Cut-away coats wherein zippers are used as asymmetrical closures and also as an instant change from a coat to a jacket by varying its length, the versatility of the piece makes it a must have for spring.
