New Meaning for the Term Tanned Skin

alexander_mcqueen_solo Those of us who know a lot about fashion often aren't well-versed in sports.  For instance, if you want to know what the "infield fly rule" is or what a "double switch" is, ask my husband not me.  But although I'm firmly in the fashion camp, I'm willing to go out on a limb and say that I know what "shirts vs skins" means.  And it's not what fashion designer, Tina Gorjac, thinks.  According to Quartz, Tina "is working on a project that will use McQueen’s DNA to grow skin, which she plans to tan and turn into leather jackets and bags. The skin will even bear tattoos based on the exact 'locations, size, and design,'of McQueen’s."  (Silence of the Lambs, anyone??)  To be clear, it's shirts VS skins, not skin-shirts or jackets or bags.  It's used to denote team affiliation in a pick-up game.  I end this post very disturbed because 1) people are growing human skin to make clothing and accessories and 2) I had to explain something related to sports.  It's clearly time for a cocktail (which will also ensure my skin will be too dry for anyone to clone it and use it to make handbags).
