The Rothko Socks

, 2013
Standard size | Off-white and red

85%Cotton 10%Polyamid 5%Elastine
Made in Barcelona

These socks are a replica of the pair the great American painter Mark Rothko was wearing at the time of his suicide. Such a tragic event affirms a palette of colours which characterise the artist’s profound existential preoccupations.

Non-objective Bib

, 2013
Toddler size | Black on white
100% cotton
Made in Barcelona

In 1913 the artist Kazimir Malevich developed a visual abstract language that attempted to set up “a genuine world order, a new philosophy of life”.  This bib bearing the black square, icon of Suprematism, suggests the promising beginnings of a new-born child.

Martin, keep your trousers up!

, 2014
Beer belly size
Leather and metal buckle
Made in Barcelona
Martin Kippenberger, self-proclaimed “artist of the 80s”, struggled to keep his trousers up at public events. His provocative and jokey attitude was a part of his artistic persona; but couldn’t it also have been the product of not owning a decent belt?

The Art Dealer’s Mat

, 2014
Printed text on PVC coir matting
62 x 33 cm
Made in Barcelona
Shipping cost included

Art dealer Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler won a respected place in art history as an early supporter of Cubist painters such as Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and Georges Braque. But you wouldn’t want to live near him knowing his habit of wiping his feet on the neighbour’s mat – as Picasso remarked after a visit to his dealer’s house.

Tamara’s Snot

, 2015
Handkerchief | 25 x 25 cm
100% Cotton
Made in Barcelona

Even though Art Deco artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) claimed her extraordinary success on her “clean and elegant style, as opposed to the dirty colours of the Impressionists”, she couldn’t help vehemently blowing her nose with this chic handkerchief.


, 2015
Unisex Apron
80% cotton, 20% polyester
Made in Barcelona

Martha Rosler’s seminal performance in 1975, Semiotics of the Kitchen, spread an aversion towards cooking amongst female artists. This unisex apron is an attempt to bring love back to the kitchen.
