NEEDLES, Engineered Garments, SURF IS DEAD, Avi Gold and More Join Garbstore's "Our Hands" Auction
A charitable art auction with gloves.
London’s Garbstore has prepped a charitable auction with proceeds going to child refugee charity Safe Passage. The retailer selected eight brands and artists to contribute customized 3D-printed vintage glove molds, all of which are up for auction.
Each mold features touches distinct to each artist; Engineered Garments‘ Daiki Suzuki offers a bespoke herringbone wool glove, while fellow NEPENTHES family member NEEDLES created a multicolored patchwork piece. Garbstore itself realized a white leather glove with red stitching — the most understated piece of the bunch, especially compared to nanamica and SURF IS DEAD‘s paper-collage pieces and the hand-painted sculptures from Yuketen/Monitaly designer Yuki Matsuda and Gimme 5. Avi Gold and TSPTR round out the offering with earth-tone painted gloves featuring camouflage and Snoopy, respectively.
Send in your bid for the auction on Garbstore’s site, but hurry — the auction ends on December 17.
