Welcome to Adults & Crafts, a new video series in which we visit the studios, homes and singular brains of some of the boldest artists working today. Today, textile artist and gearhead Tool gives us a tour of Chain Gang’s East Los Angeles studio, where they work on cars and clothes alike. Watch as Tool explains how car clubs informed their apparel and how the 1960s and ‘70s components are still relevant today. Chain Gang also shows off its collaboration with Playboy: a killer chain-stitch satin jacket you can purchase here.
Enjoy the video, and check back every two weeks for more Adults & Crafts.
