Let's just say you have a cousin who has everything she wants.... well, maybe except that $81 million dollar Monet Haystack painting that was sold less than two weeks ago at Christie's auction house. And clearly you don't have the budget that even come close to affording that insanely priced painting, what do you do?
If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know I love buying artist collabs utilitarian stuff. Here's a collection of art x stuff (much more affordable than the Monet Haystack) that you can afford to giveaway as Christmas gifts. And who knows, they may go up in value 50 or 100 years from now!! ;)
Flower Packable Tote Bag. $26. This is a tote bag by Herschel Supply co. and is a great bag on the go. You can fold the tote bag to 6" x 8" and just stick it in your purse. The bag is designed by Takahashi Murakami for Complexcon. At $26, you can't really go wrong.
Water Bottle. $28. This water bottle is designed by Alex Katz for Art Production Fund. It's a perfect water bottle for using at a gym. Just because you are sweating doesn't mean you can't be stylish at the same time.
All You Need Is Love T-shirt. $38.75. This T-shirt, designed by Damien Hirst for RED few years ago, is still on point. All profit from the sale of this t-shirt goes to RED that finances programs to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa. Fashion never looked so good.
Come to think of it, this is a perfect outfit for your cousin's yoga class! She can use the Murakami tote to carry her Katz water bottole and Hirst t-shirt to her gym. Now if only I can find an artist designed yoga mat....
