The story of a meeting and a project…
Two different paths but very similar that fate has crossed…the thirty years fashion-creative experience of Martino Barbato and the exotic military past of the street artist Claude Cuivre.
Cuivre’s life was apparently perfect, a prosperous company, a beautiful family, comfortables daily rhythms…suddenly the hell, everything suddenly collapsed for negative events that made him lose everything..even his soul.
The desire to find oblivion to erase past and present brings him to join the French Legion Etrangere in the 2nd dep. parachutistes special operation; 15 years spent between the Republic of Congo, the Ivory Coast, Afghanistan, Mali, Bosnia and Kosovo.
AK47Wear Kustom Kulture
This is why the creative ability of Martino Barbato blends with Claude Cuivre’s artistic talent giving birth to AK47Wear Kustom Kulture. A life project, where evrything is hand painted, t-shirts with though subjects inspired by the biker world, immortal ideas.
Then a collection of unique objects, where military camouflages, vintage denim jackets and large shopping bags are re-used and re-made with disassembled and modified vintage jeans, embelled with works of art where paints and colors are dominant.
Everything in AK47W is limited edition, a true Kustom Kulture.
Handmade, handpainted, made in Italy.
