Custom tailoring for Douglas Hunter, a Salt Lake music legend and one of PorchFest's founders.  An Incroyables coat in electric blue corduroy with blue leopard fur.
We adore Hunter and the way he looks here in Simon Blundell's photos.

Costume historians differ a bit on the subject of the Incroyables, but generally agree that the wild fashion trends of this hipster-punk subculture developed in reaction to the Reign of Terror, 1793–1794, when even aristocrats' servants and others merely associated with aristocrats could be and were being executed.  We are told that the giant lapels, shaggy haircuts, bows and scarves of the Incroyables should be understood as an exaggerated mockery or aping of aristocratic fashion.  Wikipedia reminds us that "Incroyable was an 18th-century French nickname for a yo-yo, then a fashionable toy." The women's (Merveilleuses') fashions spawned even more talk and scandal.
