I´m meeting up with Laura Haberkorn and Manuel Platzer, the two people behind HOOD (http://hood.studio) a Vienna-based Creative & Network Studio. They are those people in Vienna who seem to involved in so many different projects. Laura is also known for her work under the name Death & Loori (Instagram: @deathandloori). But today we talk about their next fashion show for their brand The Rebels Love Us.
Manuel and Laura explain: “We started The Rebels Love Us as a side project – the new era of rebellion. A contemporary clothing, arts and culture project with a big focus on streetwear. The name The Rebels Love Us means to not think in classic pattern. It refers to punk and to a “Fuck the normal society!” attitude. Our new collection is called: You Killed Me First which is a modern culture clash of Asian and Western culture. We play with lots of different human emotions.”
I met Laura and Manuel right before they left to Japan for the photo shoot of their newest lookbook for their collection. Manuel: “The shooting will happen in Tokyo and Kyoto in Japan and we collaborate with Andy Wolf Handmade Eyewear (http://www.andy-wolf.com/en/) and VANS (https://www.vans.at/).
Next week they will be back in Vienna and you can meet them at the Take Festival in Vienna from 25th-29th of April where their new collection will be presented: http://take-festival.com/worldwide-hood
