Tina Gorjanc has sourced the late designer Alexander McQueen’s DNA to harvest into skin tissue, which she’ll then tan and turn into human leather. In turn, she’ll fashion this leather into an already-designed collection – dubbed “The Pure Human” – of jackets, bags and backpacks. Jeff and Anthony discuss the consequences and legality of using famous DNA without permission, and imagine a world of high priced skin suits.
