South Korea-born, London-based fashion designer Tae Seok Kang created an eco-fashion collection of handbags using real human hair and vegetarian leather. Gross you might say? Not to me who won’t wear or carry leather or animal hair. In fact it seems quite ironic that humans themselves would become a part of a fashion accessory, except the method to obtain human hair is nothing like the methods to obtain animal fur.
Entitled ‘Sexual Humorous’, the bags aim to explore the “narratives of sexual human body and [address] the question of palpable sensations that manifest from the sexual instinct of human being and the range of sexiness from subtle extreme”.
