Franc Bakon

One-of-a-Kind Denim Patchwork Jacket


Denim jackets become one-of-a-kind, wearable political and social commentary through designer McKenzie Rose’s touch. Using the jackets as a base, Rose pieces together patches, cut-up T-shirts and other garments, buttons and pins—all from vintage and thrift stores—to tell a specific story with each piece. From “Crack Kills” to The Casualties, tales range from the musical to the controversial. All Franc Bakon pieces are hand-sewn by Rose himself, who spends the rest of his day working in a NYC leather shop.
