Last night Alexander Wang released his newest round of "Objects": ordinary-ish items rendered in Wang-appropriate shades of textured black. The items this time around include bike locks, coasters, inflatable pool balls, jump ropes, and bottle openers. Something about luxury black leather reworks of these banal household objects feels both indulgent and sinister; scrolling through the images feels is like browsing a dominatrix's wedding registry—literally every single one of these objects sort of looks like an expensive sex toy. Is Wang fucking with us? Are you turned on right now? Check out the re-works below, and shop the collection here.
