What’s That Grenade, Margiela?

We got that ill fodder for your Tumblr thanks to Mago Dovjenko. Dovjenko takes a bunch of #menswear approved labels and throws them onto AK-47s and helmets and shit to make some kind of statement. Inspired by “Make Art not War”, Dovjenko decided to make fashion not war. Do you guys think using such commercialized logos and brands, Dovjenko is commenting on the privatization and profiteering from modern warfare? Perhaps just the glorification and fetishization of the implements of war by society? Instead of coming up with topic sentences for a decidedly poor contemporary art reaction paper, I’m just gonna say Don C should definitely get into the customized firearm business—that AK looks dope AF with some snakeskin thrown on it. How much for a Margiela grenade, my artistic dude? I bet that when it explodes, instead of shrapnel and mayhem, it shoots out razor sharp shards of insouciance.
