We hope you know that it takes a lot to amuse us. On the scale of meh to wowee, we prefer to feature pieces that incite a d8$*#&@#!-like buzz around the R29 offices. Well, we're so speechless over this accessories collection that the symbols have officially been invoked this afternoon.
Laurel Broughton's WELCOMECOMPANIONS "Mr. Knife, Miss Fork" medley has us tickled neon pink for so many reasons. First, it's inspired by a René Crevel novel in which a butter knife woos a dinner fork and they run away together to ditch their table-side duties. Also, you know we're suckers for anything Surrealist, and these objects play on the fundamental "Ceci n'est pas un pipe" tenet of the movement (that's a Magritte reference in case you were wondering!).
Regardless of your art-history ardor, how cool will you look strolling into the next gallery opening with a hat that doubles as a clutch or popping change in the meter from a crisp white glove-shaped change purse donning poppy-red nails? d8$*#&@#! indeed!
