COMME des GARÇONS A/W 2014: “MONSTER”
"Not the typical monster you find in sci-fi and video games. The monsters I have made have a much deeper meaning: the craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful. In other words, I wanted to question the established standards of beauty."
Davide Mercatali, Nomade for Formart, 1975

“I tried to create my own vision of reality, based on one hand on a personal collection of objects and on the other, on a meticulously realistic analysis of those fragments of reality, as a contrast to Oldenburg’s ‘pop’ proposal.”
Rare and unusual “Femme Fatale” ring pistol, originates from France, third quarter of the 19th century.
