Like many of his peers, Italian Futurist painter Tullio Cralli engaged in the design of garments in an effort to bring his aesthetic and political ideology to the fore in all aspects of life. On top left is a jacket with an asymmetrical wedged lapel that covers a hidden pocket. On right is his lapeless jacket designed to be worn with a buttonless/cuffless shirt only using a cuff link closure at the collar. This design did not allow for ties to be worn, Cralli considered them to be anti-Futurist.
