Trophy Boy - Scarf

£140

Baam.... this scarf packs a psychedelic punch. Featuring our hero FrankenTaylor in glorious acid yellow, and bright blues and jade. 

"Growing up a confused queer kid in the South I was seeking an easy way to escape and psychedelics provided that way out. During this experimentation I was still in my developing years in various schools. The idea of being a trophy boy was something that I felt I was. I was either tokenised or rejected from school. Teachers had inspired me and also been my downfall. This piece is about wanting to help people but not necessarily wanting to be put on the pedestal of role model. I think often times in the education system many teachers feel the same way."

Teachers have proved a very important influence in the artist's life and the apple motif (seen throughout his work) is a reference to this.

This silk neckerchief is 65cm – small but perfectly formed. Each of these rebellious luxury accessories is finished with a gorgeous hand-rolled hem giving a sumptuous feel and that classic chunky and distinctive edge.

3D glasses come with every What's the T accessory

The artist carefully designs his paintings to transform when viewed through red and blue 3D glasses, perfectly illustrating the binary pink and blue world he grew up in. 

Made in the UK.

Comes with a branded presentation box AND a pair of 3D glasses.

Working under the alias 'FrankenTaylor' I have been telling the story of my transition from female to male. Growing up as a queer teenager in the Bible Belt of Tennessee, life was not ideal. But instead of telling a story about depression and struggle my story is more of a celebration, although told with dark humour.

FrankenTaylor with luxury pocket square

All my recent work is designed to transform when viewed with red and blue 3D glasses. This was a happy accident, discovered by chance, but meant to be as it perfectly illustrates the binary world of pink and blue that I grew up in and how different things can look when viewed through a different lens.

Patrick Morrison, Director of Furious Goose and Taylor Bystrom

My mission as an artist is to create a world of transparency and acceptance where people are free to live unafraid to be their authentic selves. My work is all about the self-made decisions that have paved my personal road to happiness. I want to tell my story so future generations do not grow up the way that I did.
