The Flowers of Anarchy is the result of an international collaboration between iconic fashion brand Hysteric Glamour and iconoclast artists Wataru Komachi and Siena Barnes.
The result is a collection of 20 one-off wearable artworks where Hysteric classics such as hoodies, leather jackets and pocket tees provide the canvasses on which Siena and Wataru deconstruct and reinvent street style and fetish wear and in the process produce pieces as suited to a nightclub as an art gallery wall.
Each piece in the show is utterly unique and impossible to mass-produce. As well as the clothing the exhibition features a series of Siena Barnes’ large scale kinky punk rock folk art watercolours, some of which have been reworked by Wataru. Music for the show is provided by Siena’s band, Saint Severin and for the lucky few there is a very limited-edition fanzine which accompanies the exhibition.
