WILL YACKULIC, CLAYPOOL'S, 2011, COURTESY OF GREGORY LIND GALLERY

Ghostly and extremely sensuous, Pin Point Oxford evacuates gender and class from an overly marked and rather quotidian garment. The white button-down is no longer so buttoned-down. Much like the work of Belgian designer Martin Margiela, who famously fashioned dresses to look like dress-forms and vests from leather gloves, Newhagen has created a piece of irresistible anti-clothing. It's a pity you can't slip it on. *
