Artificial intelligence, spoiled nutrition and ugly times call for artificial clothes, spoiled manwhores and the return of ugly garments. Plastic coats, slip-a-dick shorts and that outdoor jacket taken from your father’s closet that you always hated. What a coming out.


Refugee Crisis

1. DSquared2 Spring/Summer 2010
2. Prada Spring/Summer 2017

Let's go somewhere, let's look around and take home some souvenirs. Let's colonize taste. Good taste and bad taste. Let's go shopping collections from the past, archived, reeditioned, re-contextualized.


A Question Of Taste

1. DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2008
2. Delmas Howe Apollo And Hermes, 1990
3. DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2008
4. Delmas Howe The Persecution of an Esthese: Sebastian And Diocletian, 1990
5. DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2008

Confessions Without A Dancefloor

Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2017

Painted Cinema (2D)

1. Patrick Angus I Get Weak, 1991
2. Marlene Dumas 10 Inch, 1999

Just your regular Tuesday night entertainment.
