"I really like the narrative of the [Cartier Love] bracelet. The idea is that you go to the store, your partner buys it for you, and they screw you into [the bracelet.] The point is, you don’t take it off. But also the bracelet introduces this idea of real and fake. What’s happening between price and quality in fashion is really insane — I think sometimes it must actually be the fetish of spending money that makes people buy these things. I definitely think about knockoff culture. A lot of the clothing I use in my work is fast fashion or e-commerce. I like to complicate the hierarchy of real and fake." --Kayode Ojo
