The Fabricant is an Amsterdam-based digital-only fashion house that fuses reality with a digital scape where a hybrid aesthetic of both universes exist and evolve.
Their most recent drop named Kaspers is a 3-piece collection of digital headwear inspired by 17th and 18th century garments of The Netherlands reimagined as headpieces to be worn in the virtual world by referencing European club-culture – specifically Gabber culture; the hardcore Dutch techno movement from the 1990s.
Models were styled and shot to resemble AI or Digitally Generated Humans with ultra-glossy skin and later in post-production were dressed digitally in the Kaspers collection.
The Kaspers Collection can be customized with digital fabrics, designed by renowned digital glitch artist Ellie Pritts.
Available now on The Fabricant’s website (can be worn via AR).
