FAKEDCANDID is a pair of Singapore-based visual artists named XL and Donson. Their craft focuses in art direction, conceptual and editorial work.
One of their latest work is Somewhere Nowhere SS15 campaign called "Paint Job". "Paint Job" is a series of fashion-fused still-life images that illustrates the cynical side of a painter's job. The story is told in a surreal tone, through the peculiar tools and arrangement of objects to reveal just a pinch of the painter's existence. Within the unsuspecting bright colours lies the depictions of the painter being suffocated, squashed, knocked down and wounded -willingly or not.
Rex Lo and Elly Cheng are the enigmatic creators behind Somewhere Nowhere. Recent graduates of London College of Fashion, they founded Somewhere Nowhere in 2012, to share their favourite handmade and customised designs with the world. Somewhere Nowhere’s ethos is to take everyday unisex streetwear and inject them with a bit of magic. Sourcing materials from every corner of the world, they aimed to change humdrum life to the wonderland. Every piece is limited or exclusive and are handmade by designer in their playhouse. Their works were previously featured on Sunday Times, Grazia, AnOther, Nylon Japan, WAD, Vice, Style Bubble...etc.
