Ornament is not always harmless. For example, Cornelia Hesse-Honegger uses her fabrics to document a threatened species of poisonous frogs or mutant ladybugs, all scientifically based. The ties in the collection of SRF news anchor Charles Clerc showcase the complete spectrum of Fabric Frontline’s typical color contrasts, motifs, and designs. And these ties testify to a fashion statement: the aesthetic-ironic flair with which the man of the world circa 1990 adorned himself.
