This bowtie is titled “I Looooove Your Culture: Hipsters in Headdresses” and was designed by Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit/Aleut) for Dick Bernanin Menswear. It features the faces of white hipsters wearing Native American headdresses.
The bowtie was launched on October 18, in conjunction with Galanin’s “I Looooove Your Culture” exhibit opening at the Trench Gallery in Vancouver, and will be sold exclusively through Beyond Buckskin Boutique.
Galanin’s work is a highly charged mix of beauty, material knowledge, politics and contemporary cultural representation. Navigating both the Native American art world as well as the contemporary global art world, Galanin continuously challenges the aesthetic and cultural perceptions of Native identity.
