If you thought backpacks can’t be freaky, reading this article and looking at the images would change your mind. Some artists in the world are dedicated to creating the most astonishing, awe-inspiring, positively frightening designs that are entirely out of this world. Think efficient pieces on crack, smoking a psychedelic drug that creates human anatomic wearable accessories as a figment of one’s imagination become reality. Kofta is a kiev-based label by designer Konstantin Kofta, a man who combines elements that appear to be contradictory and perfectly outside the traditions of the fashion industry with clothing pieces and wearable accessories that really throw one for a loop while still remaining somewhat practical. It’s certainly not the typical day when we see skin, bones, hands and feet defining the designs of a series of backpacks, shoes and handbags. The scariest part is that each piece isunexpectedly anatomically accurate and way too realistic for comfort.
There are three particular collections that really freak a person out, with ‘hug’, ‘born’ and ‘roots’ having a common theme of human anatomy and “linking visuals of praying and perched hands, skeletal segments and toes together in a series of couture items.” There’s something to be said about a designer bold enough to venture into this realm. It was one thing to have skeletons or muscular based more cartoonish designs on hoodies, shirts, etc., but this is a little too much for sensitive tastes. Descriptions of each collection also do their best to keep your hair sticking out from the roots, so full of philosophy they are.
