Absinthes

A KALTBLUT exclusive. “Absinthes” is a project born by Aline Estaquier and Thais Rebaudieres. The project depicts young people wanting to enter the world of Parisian fashion, covering themselves with masks to survive in Parisian nightlife. The photographs were taken by Leila Calvaruso. 

Aline Estaquier is a Parisian stylist and costume designer. Her stylistic associations are contrasting, often amalgamating everything through the practice of layering. Graduated in Art History, her touch stands out for her historical approach to clothing, taking its source to contrast with contemporaneity. Thaïs Rebaudieres is a French art historian and scenographer who draws her influences from the art of the past and the current Parisian scene. She aims to contribute to the modernization of the contemporary art scene, by participating in the realization of projects illustrating a raw reality and under-represented models.

Leila Calvaruso is a French-Italian photographer and visual artist. Born in Palermo, her love for photography was evident from a young age, getting closer to intimacy and beauty through photography. In parallel with her multiple projects exploring different mediums, she followed academic training initially at Paris 8 Université, currently in Milan in Fashion Photography allowing her to refine her art and be able to move and evolve.
