Youth is the word that could best define the brand Afterhomework. Founded by Pierre Kaczmarek when he was still in high school in 2014, he was later joined by Elena Motola. Respectively aged of 19 ad 20 years old, the duo is sharing the creative direction of the brand. Mostly inspired by streetwear and the city of Paris, Afterhomework’s clothing is a true work in progress: pieces are deconstructed and they play with details such as drawstrings in their latest collection. Spotted just after their first show, the brand has been selected by New Now, the digital window of La Fédération Française de la Haute Couture et de la Mode which gives visibility and support to emerging talents and is now part of the official schedule of Paris Fashion Week.
