The pants are made from up to 30 individual panels of natural rubber, which allows them to be inflated to oversized, balloon-like proportions using a small valve at the bottom.

Under the shortened brand name Harri, the designer is selling a mint green and white candy cane-striped design that was originally featured in his graduate collection alongside a previously unseen high-shine black version.
“The black pair will be a part of the studio’s core collection,” he said. “They are easier to wear and walk in, and hardly take a minute to inflate.”
