" A Small Polo Obsession…" Sculpture and art by Joseph Vaughan
The Suicide Ski coat features a practically identical design to the sweatshirt (which is also featured as a miniature on this site) except for a difference to the placement of the four stars in the space at the top left of the design.
Simple, bold and impactful the design features an american flag themed background of stars and stripes, a green border and black block on which the downhill skier is silhouetted.
The name ‘Suicide Ski’ by all accounts seems to echo the ‘tuck’ position of the skier as well as the notion that the piece is so desirable that wearing it on the streets of New York after its release and tempting would be thieves was plain suicide.
So iconic and rare is the piece that it surely must rank in the top 5 power pieces of Polo collectables.
