Bags By Chanel, Prada, Luxury Brands Recreated With Pancakes, Waffles, Bagels

Pankcakes No. 5, inspired by Chanel

Exploring the theme of luxury and consumerism, New York-based artist and creative Chloe Wise has created an intriguing collection of food-themed sculptures that are quirky recreations of designer bags by luxury fashion brands.

Drawing inspiration from the creations of Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton and other well-known labels, she makes the viewer look at these high fashion accessories differently by re-making them with pancakes, waffles, bagels and bread.

For instance, the piece named “Pancakes No. 5” shows a purse that is covered with a generous stack of syrup-soaked pancakes, which is topped with the iconic logo of fashion house Chanel.

These tongue-in-cheek artworks are humorous in nature, and show the similarity between designer goods and art pieces where both are seen as “pieces of cultural capital”.

You can view more images of these unusual bags, made with urethane, oil paint and found hardware, on Wise’s website.
