Dazed's ultimate guide to US creativity
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.
