Duchamp Urinal Dress

Craft & Design

For a mere $2,607 you too could be a walking work of couture art with … yes, this happened … The Urinal Dress, inspired by Duchamp’s famous 1917 readymade, Fountain. London designer Philip Colbert created the dress as part of his Venus in Sequins collection, which also includes inspiration from Pop notables such as Warhol and Lichtenstein. And before you go eye-rolling over such outré fashion, consider that each dress is hand crafted with over 3 weeks of sequin and embroidery work. Whoa. Craft on, brother. And be sure to give Leslie Hall a shout next time you’re stateside. [via Laughing Squid]

    Duchamp wasn’t a Pop artist, he was a Dadaist. Also, he spent more than ten years working on “The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even.” I don’t know many artists who only take a couple of weeks to finish a piece. The physical work that went into Duchamp’s Readymades, like the “Fountain,” are not the emphasis of the pieces, what is important in those works is the idea behind them, and the conversations and ideas they helped to start.

    I find this dress fairly offensive- maybe its because the only message I see is “brautiful eoman – please urinate over her”
