Lux Gore

Studio Toogood headed by designer Faye Toogood, created this gory scene in the Hermés London store. I suppose it is a cheeky nod to the origins of "fine leather goods" i.e. animals. I imagine vegans everywhere are horrified at how the fashion house revels in the brutality of fine leather. I personally like this installation, though I see how some might feel this is in poor taste. I have never been in denial about where all that leather I love so much comes from. It might even start a few conversations, hopefully not just about the stupid brand.

  1. I quite like this and I think it would be very interesting to see if other companies or industries did something similar to this and showed the unfortunate things that have to happen to create something, not to say "look at all bad things that go into this lets stop it", but rather to have a better understanding of what has to happen in terms of animal and human cost. I personally am unaware of all of the things that go into my clothing, computer, car, gasoline. It is always interesting to see what happens "behind closed doors", but most things in life that we use have some type of terrible cost, but this is how it has always been and always will be. Unless we want to get rid of 99% of everything we use, wear, and eat.
