Azumi and David

Surrealist, practical, funny or not, Azumi and David (A'N'D) are the types to take a theme and run with it. The pair have made both high-heeled a brogue versions of their shoe bags (what girl hasn't wished for a surface suitable for resting on dirty floors?) and have configured eyeglass frames into endless necklace arrangements, both riffing on design and fashion in one blow. Other pieces, like their creepy-weird hair scarf, are less about reinvention and more bizarre experiments that almost seem to uninvent.

As fans of any kind of novelty tape, we're taken with the ties, button-downs, ribbons and ruffles in the Spring/Summer 2008 collection that instantly add a bit of formality to any t-shirt.

You can catch the shoe bags and more as part of a surrealist exhibit up at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam through 13 January 2008. Several shoe bags, as well as the hair scarf and a few other items are available for sale online from Creatures of Comfort.
