Yael Mer’s “Evacuation Skirt” was designed tongue-in-cheek. Or was it?
Conceived after the New Orleans hurricane and flood, says Yael: “The skirt keeps its glamorous look when it’s deflated on the one hand, and on the other, it inflates into a kayak with the right amount of volume to carry a grown up woman.
She adds, “I wanted to raise the question of emergency and beauty and to explore whether they can meet each other.”Green Prophet says S.O.S.
If sea levels in the Middle East rise (that’s what the experts say will happen, after global warming sets in), we’ll be ordering a few of these skirts.
