Style and Substance

by Syd Briscoe


Argos: “So Stylish You Can Wear It” - 60s

Argos are extremely proud of their latest collection of home furnishings, as evidenced by this tongue-in-cheek ad from directing collective Traktor. Fixtures and fittings become fashion as everyday items are transformed into high-concept outfits which skirt the line between parody and performance art.

Each vignette is presented with admirable comic flair, as everyday scenes are disrupted by surprise catwalks from unexpected places. From besuited chairs strutting out of the fridge to body-popping lamps lurking in the dark, it's a fresh spin on home accessories… and an invitation for an extreme wardrobe overhaul.
