Mexican duo composed by Francisco Saldana and Victor Hernal, who spent more than 15 collections in history and characterized by the following word: alternative. Malafacha is a brand created by these two designers who seek inspiration in everything that the other designers don’t and that’s the reason why they don’t often get the recognition they deserve from the media in Mexico.
Studies in Fashion and Visual Merchandising by Victor and Francisco’s Visual Communication degree, complement perfect vision who want to share to the public that acclaims they as artists. Collections in neutral colors, ranging from urban-inspired rock, streetstyle and statement pieces with conceptual designs are the result of the wonderful job of the mark.
The latest collection presented at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring Summer 2016 in Mexic called ”Disorder” is the perfect reference to a dark and rude world in the 80’s.
It’s clear that you should follow them more closely and check their work.
