I don't usually look at Wallpaper magazine at newsstands but I'm glad I did yesterday! Instead of having computer artists to interpret a fashion story (that was what inspired me to get into the business!), they invited a London-based ceramicist Barnaby Barford to create one-of-a-kind figurines wearing high-fashion from Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Missoni . His work resembles the Baroque Nymphenburg Porcelain or the serene Lladro figurines but f**ked up with the pop-culture references, and it works. They are witty but not overdone, the seals below look like they've been wearing Nike and Evisu all their lives, don't they?
