Working with dead things: the beginning of junkprints fall/winter selection. Yes I will be one of those vegetarians that works with leather. here are the rules: no new leather will be purchased only deadstock and repurposed skins. I just feel that if I could make a belt/ bag from sheep skin, I could most certainly make a belt/bag from human skin (disturbing, huh?) so I’ve drawn a wavering line to maintain my perception of moral standards.
Usually I don't miss s. california, but lately I've been feeling nostalgic and wanting to wear really short skank shorts, stretch out on the sand and drive along the 5 freeway. If I was in Cali right now this bag would be my best friend. i would rock it with big aviator sunglasses and a burrito! I'd pop in for Shepard Fairey art openings, rub shoulders with celebs and when they asked about my bag, I'd say, 'oh this thang, I just f'n around in the studio yesterday and made it' that's the difference btwn NY and LA, in NY everyone prides them selves on their 'hussle', in LA the goal is to make your hussle look effortless.
