A fascinating interview with the man behind the Cosby sweater [video]


If it looked like the result of an industrial waste accident, chances are, it was fashionable in the ‘80s, the era of big hair, loud colors, and, of course, the Cosby sweater.

What you may not have known was that those far-out designs were the brainchild of one very outspoken Dutch designer by the name of Koos van den Akker who sat down with VICE to talk about his life, work, and experiences with the legendary Bill Cosby.

Trust us, his personality is just as colorful as those sweaters were, so there are a few NSFW moments. Enjoy.
