I have said it before – one person’s tat is another person’s ephemeral slice of apple pie and cream. Not that this piece of ephemera was ever remotely tat nor never meant to be.
A paper version of the classic Loewe Amazona bag. Complete with a paper Loewe tag and a real metal Loewe padlock. All neatly tucked into the substantial (feel the texture) Loewe cardboard product box. Finished off with a ribbon.
The card of provenance inside reads:
Life Expectancy 30 days!
A substantial paper giveaway for the insubstantial fashion bunny. Kindly given to this wannabe. Referencing everything from Chinese paper clothes burnt to clothe the dead, to Warhol’s paper dresses and the recent cult of paperessness across fashion, art, design and the rest.
Not sure what it says about me that I’d much rather this paper version than the real thing.
