About Ju$t Another Rich Kid

New York based artist Ken Courtney is founder of the independent fashion label, Ju$t Another Rich Kid. His artwork and clothing address fame, celebrity status and the commodification of names and brands in contemporary media. Like celebrity and celebrity culture, demand for luxury items is completely created. As an extension of our obsession with fame, celebrity, and commodities, Courtney’s Ju$t Another Rich Kid created a line of luxury objects: Indulgences (for the man who has absolutely everything).

"Luxury objects are usually functional, but made for people who want to be ostentatious and have an item that everyone else has—but that’s obviously better quality and more expensive. With Indulgences, I wanted to comment on luxury accessories by making items that take that and push the envelope," says Courtney. Indulgences address the creation of and demand for the unnecessary, directly commenting on the ever-expanding market of luxury items in our culture. In order to hit just the right balance in the collection, he’s teamed up with a master in the design world, Tobias Wong, who is known for transforming every day objects into objects of desire.
