Chanel Samurai Armor by Tetsuya Noguchi
It would be facetious to think that Japanese warriors would need haute couture armour in times of battle. As an homage to luxury label Chanel, Tetsuya Noguchi created samurai armour made from resin, cashew lacquer, cloth, and glass. The “C” Chanel logo is prevailant in the piece located on the chest. I doubt the the armour was ever commissioned, but if it were then it's occupier would be the height of battlefield fashion, evnvied by all the other samurai. If you're going to go to war you might as well do it in style i guess?
