Canadian Surprises Fashion World with Their “Suitcases”

The theme “luggage” is serious about style and consumption. The plastic artist Chloe Wise picked up the theme and provoked the fashion world with this job where luxury brands handbags get a new face. They become sandwiches, bagels, muffins, bread-shaped and croissants.

Chanel, Moschino, Prada or Louis Vuitton. The mere mention of these marks challenges a cerebral response associated with the words “This suitcase has to be mine.” Making the DREAM Act of consumption can, however, be a little more difficult. It will all depend on a few hundred or even thousands of euros available in the wallet. Attentive to this issue, Canadian plastic artist Chloe Wise, conceived a set of work, called “bread bags” (literally suitcases) where he explores the idea of ephemeral in consumption.

Chloe searches with her suitcases, wallets, backpacks of luxury brands alert for the transitional nature of the luxury objects. Nothing better than foods that deteriorate after a few days. Everyday foods like sandwiches, bagels, muffins, fashion bread and croissants.

One of these pieces of art made a really bore at a party of Chanel, when the actress and writer India Menuez paraded with one of the suitcases of Chloe Wise. The work of art, transposed into a mundane context, has become spoken. Some media attributed the creation to the stylist Karl Lagerfeld.

To produce these pieces in real format, the artist, currently headquartered in New York, resorts to oil painting, polymers, leather and various hardware.
