Step Inside KAWS’ Art-Filled Brooklyn Home

Published

on

Fresh off the release of his BFF Vinyl edition, world renowned artist Brian Donnelly, more famously known as KAWS, has provided a look inside his triangle-shaped residence in Brooklyn, New York.

Covering the December 2017 issue of Architectural Digest, Donnelly, along with his wife and sculptor Julia Chiang, showcase the art-filled home, as well as share a few anecdotes in the recent spotlight by AD.

Here are a few takeaways that we learned from the conversation.

…on how he decided to move into the triangle-shaped industrial building, initially designed by Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall.

BD: “I used to walk by here every once in a while. I wasn’t looking for a place—though I always like to look—so it was a spontaneous purchase. And after completing my main studio, which was a ground-up project, I came into this wanting to just get in as quickly as possible.”

…on his workspace since the building is divided between family living areas, administrative office and art storage.

BD: “I tend to live in a bit of a bubble between home and work.” (The studio is just a short bike ride away and he describes himself as “not very social”.)

…on his vast and varied collection of art, ranging from the 1950s to the present, and has acquired dozens of works by the same artist.

BD: “I collect piece by piece. But then you get into it and you just start thinking about the missing pieces. I don’t buy art to put in specific places. I just collect what I love and hope to find a place for it to be visible. When I come home, it’s refreshing to focus on other artists.”

manier x Embellish ?

Published

Brand new images of hand stitched and curated denim by manier  brand’s very own Maximillian Manier have surfaced!

Being the innovator of the renound- “self titled-seasonal wear” alone has mapped out a sure fire and trail blazing route to atop any list of up and coming designers.

His designs include reworked masterpieces which mainly consist of Levi’s Brand denim, although there has been verifiable accounts (as well as the D.S.D exclusive pictures we’ve featured below!) of Maximillian working on mock ups with what some have identified as Embellish Denim. Which may have surfaced on either’s social media accounts (links below).

Maybe it’s the ever-changing names, or maybe it’s the superior hand craftsmanship that will forever be synonymous with either brands. One thing is for certain is that regardless of the times or collab at hand, Manier is a force to recognize and reckon with. I’d keep a close look out for a chance to snag any limited production pieces for the up and coming 2020’s!
