CT Icons #2: Chris Habana on fashion, wokeness, and getting paid in exposure
CT is proud to present CT Icons, a new weekly web series. Our favorite, legendary Dutch artists introduce us to their most inspiring and iconic international friends and colleagues, and talk about their work, personal lives and the power of art.
In this second episode of CT Icons, Dutch creative studio MAISON the FAUX talks to their friend Chris Habana:
Chris Habana is the designer of the homonym New York based jewelry brand Chrishabana, since 2008. His pieces have been featured in publications such as Vogue, V, W, i-D Magazine, Dazed & Confused and has been worn by celebrities such as Rihanna, Madonna, Lady Gaga, FKA Twigs and Kylie Jenner.
MAISON the FAUX is “a creative studio posing as a grand couture fashion house”. The Fictional House, a rough translation of MAISON the FAUX, is rooted in the great fascination of what’s REAL and FAKE, a great sense of humor and self-mockery, combined with a deep love of fashion. The studio specializes in performance art, fashion & costume design and set and interior design. The work of MAISON the FAUX is determined by it’s multidisciplinary approach; MAISON the FAUX aims to create work that finds the perfect synergy between many creative arts. Creating shows, plays, experiences, collections, spaces and much more, that invites audiences to be a part of the MAISON the FAUX universe.
