One to watch: Maldito Batkoeur! Love in your living room

Introducing Maldito Batkoeur! Creative Direction by Francisco Terra. Photography by Leo D’oriano. Beauty by Celine Exbrayat. “This second collection is one of Maldito’s spin-offs, an open letter to calm love and how we found ourselves in a safe place in this new house, that we built with our own hands (and YouTube tutorials). Shapes and materials take direct inspiration from the renovations we have done and the moments we lived here so far, such as a witchy dress made from protective construction rugs or jewellery presenting incrusted objects in resin.”

“Prints are taken from the only places we socialized this past year, Leroy Merlin and Batkor, typical French construction markets. The completed looks though take us through a deeper and sentimental journey on leaving Paris behind, as the RATP bunny look and the Marlboro wall tapestry made into a dress referring to smugglers in our new neighbourhood.

Fashion for me is this, the storytelling just like our illustrated album. We aim to start developing a surrealist yet romantic brand, shaped to the queer community where we belong, and let Maldito evolve organically in a world devastated by so many social issues.
As I question my identity and my choices, I invite you to live this adventure with me, making a place for people in the industry that question the system and fight for representation.
With Love Francisco Terra”
