Finger puppets

Manual dexterity at its finest.

A good tailor is hard to find. A tailor for a hand puppet suit – even harder. In this new spot by Lernert and Sander, Wallpaper* magazine takes the idea of hand-craftsmanship to the next level. With a suit designed and stitched by Italian tailor Brioni, the spot takes an almost GQ photoshoot quality to it with the suited hand strutting its stuff on a “catwalk” (read: ironing board).  We’re positive they could successfully market this as a glove line.
