Menswear #1: Art star!

Inspired by Barbara Kruger, Piet Mondrian, comic books and primary colours. Entry for the Polyvore menswear contest.

I saw a Barbara Kruger exhibition at ACCA a couple of years ago, and they had mugs for sale, with some of her slogans printed on them. I remembered wondering if that was dumb, ironic, or irony doubling in on itself to be dumb again. I always wonder the same thing when I see people wearing those Andy Warhol Che Guevara t-shirts. Interestingly, Guevara's family has come out against those t-shirts recently.
