As part of our new summer US project States of Independence, we've invited our favourite 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to take over Dazed for a day. Today, as part of our State of Fashion week, DIS is taking over. Commissioned shoots showcase a series of products created by artists as part of their DISown project – which ties together art objects and notions of consumerism. Each one is accompanied by faux Amazon-style reviews from artists, curators, writers, and users from Amazon's Mechanical Turk.
Why buy Adidas, when you can buy Adidas hand-painted by art school students? As seen on everyone from Cooper Union undergrads to porn star Stoya, this tracksuit is the latest in brand worship on a budget: hand-painted streetwear.
