Join your sweetest nightmares unchained in the gritty spectacle of fashion editorial by KALAFAKER.
Text by Padla Nemeckova
Originating in the underground scene of Buenos Aires, KALAFAKER is now a Spanish-based project combining fashion and art in a syncretic, eclectic/harmonic way. KALAFAKER bears the name and the soul of its founder Pablo Kalafaker, designer and artist currently living in Madrid. KALAFAKER is not just a clothing line. It is its own space of creative self-expression open to experiments and collaborations with other artists.
‘DEAD by KALAFAKER’ presents a fashion editorial created in collaboration with Marcopunk (model & styling) showing a selection of pieces from ‘Vintage Customized’ and ‘missing link’ lines. In an up-cycling DIY fashion, ‘Vintage Customized’ uses authentic bits of cult aestheticism of the 70s/80s/90s era and creates a mosaic of fiery elements with punk energy of raw riffs and fetishistic beauty of latex, chains, and safety pins. ‘missing link’ comprises of author’s own made-from-scratch handmade designs. It is an explosion generating an awesome vision of a futuristic subcultural hero – drag and fab, asexual, and timeless.
