Toronto’s Design Exchange museum is displaying an expensive exhibition dedicated to toys. Titled ‘This Is Not A Toy‘, the exhibition is curated by John Wee Tom, Sara Nickelson and Pharrell Williams, and it runs till May 19th, 2014.
‘This Is Not A Toy‘ features an exciting collection of artworks and “conceptual toys” created by famous artists including KAWS, Takashi Murakami, Coarse, Huck Gee and Frank Kozik. The value of the toys displayed range from $2 to $2 million. Did you know that Pharell Williams is a passionate toy collector? Many of these pieces are part of his personal collection.
It seems that the wires and the optical illusions from Kane’s previous collections (Women RST and Men Spring 2014) have evolved into another phase. Some dresses displayed in Christopher Kane Fall 2014 show bring out surprising 3D constructions. Desirable, wearable, perfectly designed for girls with flat silhouettes.
