Well this is weird. You don’t normally associate strange, grotesque monsters with high-end fashion (unless of course, you do) but these are brilliant! Apolinário Pereira, a Portuguese visual artist and sculptor, makes these little creatures for a living, many of them inspired by the strange and glorious looks seen on the catwalk.
This series is inspired by high-end fashion labels such as Maison Martin Margiela, Jil Sander, Raf Simons, ACNE and Paul Smith and the great thing about them is that they aren’t created with a cynical edge as you’d perhaps presume they may be. This is probably why these little guys are actually selling for a lot of money and are well-loved and in-demand by fashion designers worldwide.
