Duality is a creative state of mind with incredible expressive potentials, for the contradictory balances that could come to life have the ability to harmonically combine the best of both worlds. Exinfinitas is a denim studio and a luxury brand from Australia whose aesthetic identity is based upon this conflict of differences which, almost as an absolute motive, runs through their entire body of work.
A creative dialogue between the east and the west, voids accompanied by solid volumes, organic and synthetic or even physical and the non-material, they all appear as a vital part in Lukas Vincent’s, the brand’s creative director and designer, artistic process. The starting point for his almost ceremonial synthetic madness, this marriage of pure artistic references with fashion elements, is a sharp minimalist background, filled with black and white fabrics, ripped denim and geometric details that complete the picture of a contemporary poet of decadence.
At the same time the naked body itself appears as crucial component of the composition, filling the blanks of a curious, yet intriguing story that takes place somewhere between Paris and Australia with the tales of a clochard poet of the streets. A creature of enormous portions of new age cool and a subtle touch of conceptual-ism to finish the result.
