Chanel chainsaw (and more)

Holy cow, I want one of these so bad, just because its a mashup of my two favorite things: high fashion and violence (haha... right).

from BoingBoing.

From the site: New York born artist Tom Sachs is something of a troublemaker on the art scene. Focused on critiquing fashion and street cultures, he manipulates our ideas of consumption, branding, commercial imagery and objects of money and power. Tom Sachs addresses the mania around fashion, attempting to change viewer’s perceptions of precious items and revered brands. His pieces have a very "do-it-yourself" quality, made from mundane materials: foam core, Sharpie markers, duct tape and hot glue.
