Speaking to British Vogue, he explained: “This collection is one of the purest forms of my expression that I’ve come up with.
“A paper clip is less than 5 cents. Done in diamonds it obviously exudes a different value, but it offers the same intrigue to the brain when you look at it. I love the conundrum. I love that your brain can ping-pong between value based on form and materiality. That’s why I call it an object of art rather than a piece of fashion.”
Abloh’s new collection launched this week, and prices range from $3,000 to $72,000.
