Gender Diversion & Queer Bodies in ‘Darkness of the Fantasies’

‘Darkness of the Fantasies’ was created and conceptualized in collaboration with Latinx nonbinary queer designer Mateo Suarez, who focuses primarily on queer/trans/POC bodies. Evoking heaven on earth and inspired by dark fantasy manga, Final Fantasy, and early 2000s internet, the editorial explores themes of subversion and genderfuck through the depiction of the fantasies, wearing garments and accessories by queer designer MATEO.
