Check out the Vogue interview/article on Bradley Soileau, the fashion brain behind Blackfist.
Blackfist was described by Soileau in the interview. Excerpt below.
How do you describe the Blackfist aesthetic? What was your motivation behind launching it?
It’s rebellion, sex, violence, aggression. It’s good and bad and sexy and ugly. It’s for someone who wakes up every day and says, I want to be loud and angry, or, I want to get fucked, or, I don’t really give a shit what I look like but I still look awesome. That’s the aesthetic, that’s the person who should want to wear it and who would vibe with it or understand it. It’s for the throwaways with style, the forgotten ones that look like shit but dress better than your latest fashion icons. I started it because I wanted to show people that there’s still art in fashion, it all hasn’t just become a consumer-driven business . . . to make art for myself. To leave a lasting impression on the world so when I die it wouldn’t have been for nothing.
