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.

Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida founded MARQUES ' ALMEIDA in 2011 subscribing to the Helmut Lang school of thought, where 'fashion is about attitude, not hemlines'.




While their aesthetic evokes raw effortless­ness, the duo's technical sensibilities are revealed in the construction of each piece. Cutting their teeth at Vivienne Westwood and Preen respectively, Marques and Almeida took the natural course of combin­ing talents. They create for a market that desires sartorial instincts with an authentic edge.


They have been awarded NEWGEN sponsorship from British Fashion Council/Topshop and have shown SS13, AW13 and SS14 on schedule at London Fashion Week.

MARQUES ' ALMEIDA has also been nominated for the Emerging Talent  - Womenswear Award at the British Fashion Awards 2013.

Finally, Portuguese but London based designers just won the LVMH prize for young fashion designers which represents one year of mentoring from LVMH Group spanning all areas of the business, from production to press, in addition to the 300 000€ cash prize.

The second ever and annual LVMH Prize attracted almost a thousand applications from all over the world, but in the end, there can only be one.

Last April 2014, the jury of the Festival International de Mode et de Photographie à Hyères, presided over by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (creative directors of Kenzo), rewarded the winner of the Première Vision grand Jury Prize, Kenta Matsushige, a young Japonese designer.




Thanks to a partnership between Villa Noailles festival and Petit Bateau, the winner of the Grand Prix du Jurry Première Vision is granted "carte blanche" to reinvent the brand's iconic pieces, while perpetuating its traditional know-how.

Kenta Matsushige has chosen to revisit Petit Bateau tee-shirt and the sailor-shirt in a clean, subdued, architectural style. The creations are simple and sophisticated.
