When it comes to luxury, nothing says debauchery like champagne. Perhaps that's why British-Nigerian artistYinka Shonibare MBEchose it as a medium for his Dreaming Rich collection.
The collection features a globe-headed mannequin dressed in snazzy clothes doing handstands, climbing on furniture and exhibiting all sorts of wild behavior while clasping a bottle of champagne. This 'champagne kid' is meant to be ''a colorful critique of the tainted luxury and greed that has led the world into a critical state,'' according to Design Boom.
Shonibare's champagne kid will be exhibited at Hong Kong's Pearl Lam Galleries from November 19th until January 9th, 2014.
The coronavirus crisis has hit the hospitality industry hard, forcing many restaurants to close. But others, such as former 108 chef Kristian Baumann, have taken the opportunity to open new and innovative concepts in the middle of the pandemic.
