This Artist Doused Designer Clothes in Paint

By

Talk about a heavy pour. For the new issue of V magazine, artist Ai Weiwei subjected an array of Dover Street Market's emerging designer pieces to an onslaught of colorful paint, then photographed the results. The (presumably good-natured) participants included 1205, Jacquemus, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Hood by Air, KTZ, Melitta Baumeister, and Phoebe English (above left). Click through the slideshow to see the messy results, which will be on display at the store this Sunday.
