Legendary tattoo artist Dr. Woo on his Venice-inspired collaboration with Golden Goose

The sought-after Los Angeles tattoo artist tells Wallpaper* about his ‘Dreamed by Dr. Woo’ collection for Golden Goose, a collaboration which began on the waterways of Venice. This past May, the floating city of Venice was transformed into a creative playground for cult Italian luxury brand, Golden Goose, to celebrate the inauguration of its ‘HAUS of Dreamers’ project. Dr. Woo continues his journey with Golden Goose this month  with a special collection inspired by the project.

The inspirations included Venetian damask, a form of the jacquard fabric which is synonymous with the city. The hand-drawn decorations that adorned the room’s fabrics and porcelain – spanning flowers, celestial
motifs, spiders, lions and birds – recalled at once the Renaissance splendour of the city. The new collection comprises three limited-edition items: a ‘lived-in’ collegiate sweater, a version of the house’s Super Star sneaker and a porcelain plate (of the latter, just 85 will be produced).

Each features Dr. Woo’s distinct motifs – including embroidered versions on the sweater – reflecting those which appeared in the original project.
