For the 20th anniversary issue of Dazed & Confused, we got in touch with our extended family of collaborators, and asked them to send us the one object they felt best represented their last two decades, for the purpose of constructing a 'time capsule'. Upon deciding to hand over the contents to our readers, as well as fashion, art, and culture enthusiasts across the world, we set up shop with Ebay, and chose Oxfam to benefit from the money raised. The auction runs from November 20-27, 2011. We are auctioning 34 pieces of memorabilia in total, with generous participants ranging from international fashion designers to Dazed’s very own home grown talents.
Today’s object is Christopher Kane’s coveted aqua liquid bag from his A/W11 collection. In recent years the young designer has became a powerful voice in fashion beyond the UK’s borders, perhaps aided by his work revamping Versace’s rock ‘n’ roll inspired line, Versus. Kane wonders what future generations will make of his original creation: “The Aqua Liquid bags from my A/W11 collection are receiving a lot of attention – it will be interesting to see where they sit in 50 years time.”
