When we first wrote about Pelican Avenue back in FADER #44, you couldn't find their arty pieces this side of the Atlantic. Thanks to Maryam Nassir Zadeh, you can now pick up an awesomely esoteric digi-print shirt on the LES. The Austrian fashion/art label have yet to stage one of their infamous performances in the US, although you can get your feet wet for spring 2010 via Vimeo. The Hanging Garden party was staged during Tokyo Fashion Week and features Alex Murray-Leslie of Chicks on Speed writhing around the new season tableau of purply loveliness in a nude bodysuit. Fast forward to 2:55 on the video for the climax, when Murray-Leslie turns into a human drum machine, hits the electrode on her ass that yells "CAT," and the one on her boob that screams "WALK."
