Yesterday, Banksy opened the figurative doors to his new homeware brand, Gross Domestic Product, an online store that has launched as an attempt to stop a greeting cards company trademarking the name "Banksy."

As you would expect, given the reasoning and the artist's typical output, the products are cynical and satirical, all delivering commentary on the state of current power systems. Should you be unsure of the message each item sends, Banksy has also crafted their descriptions into poetic summaries.

Find our favorite pieces from Banky's Gross Domestic Product store below.

Banksy™ Met ball

Price: £500.00

This glittering treasure is described as a home entertainment lighting system crafted from approximately 650 little mirrors. If you were wondering, the inspired title is less a reference to Anna Wintour's annual gala and more a disco-coated wrecking ball of disdain aimed at London's Metropolitan Police Service.

Banksy™ Clutch bag

Price: £750.00

If dropping hundreds on Jacquemus' microscopic bags didn't satisfy your gimmick itch, then this hefty processory could be the one for you. Plus, as Banksy states, it's way more practical than your average clutch. Since it's made from genuine house brick it doubles up as a tool to whack someone in the face, should you so desire.

Banksy™ Banksquiat

Price: £500

New York post-graffiti pioneer Jean-Michel Basquiat has been commodified by countless brands in the last years, from Uniqlo to Be@rbricks, so naturally, Banksy made a comment on this by commodifying Basquiat's work too.

Banksy™ Vest

Price: £850.00

A must-cop piece for any Stormzy fan — he wore this vest during his Glastonbury headline set this summer. Essentially, this is a gentlemen's waistcoat "updated for modern times." It's customized with the Union Jack flag and is capable of stopping .45 calibre bullets as well as being fully stab-proof. Joy!

Banksy™ Baby Mobile

Price: TBC

Get your young one ready for its impending Black Mirror reality with this ceiling mounted baby mobile. Described as the ultimate stimulus toy, this piece is aimed at preparing children for a lifetime of constant state and self-imposed scrutiny.

Banksy™ Rug

Price: TBC

The product description for this one is too good to rephrase so here it is verbatim. "A bit of old carpet painted to resemble the diabetes riddled corpse of Tony the tiger, this floor covering makes quite the conversation piece – especially if the conversation centres around the UK spending over £7.8million a year on tooth extractions for the under 5’s."

Banksy™ Tombstone

Price: TBC

The ultimate gift for the over-consumer. "What do you buy for the person who has everything?" asks Banksy. The answer? "A 230kg reminder that you can’t take it with you." Ouch. But accurate.
