MUTUKA is a clothing brand founded by the Italian Brazilian Lucas Caldana and it is based where the artist currently lives, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Lucas studied Fine Arts in Brazil - at the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo (UFES), Fashion & Branding at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI) and is graduated in Marketing by Unigran Europa.
Lucas’s vision delves into his cultural heritage and background whereby punk aesthetics and critical thinking encounters art, design, street culture, music, and experimentation.
The interlocking of different cultures and three-dimensional experiences exploits Lucas Caldana’s creativity and its intellectum resulting in unique pieces and the curation of new ideas within its fashion.
Primarily, MUTUKA should be seen as an extension of Caldana’s work as an artist! And as a result, the brand believes that the current fashion system should be challenged while improved. The goal is to lower environmental impact, and also twist the mainstream perception of what consumerism means.
MUTUKA also aims to break the monotony and awaken your inner instincts by envisioning that ‘empowerment comes from inside’ and by practicing a more humanistic approach to things and beings around us!
Above all, MUTUKA shares a belief in freedom into different spheres and the creative world of possibilities that continually brings us all together.
We all BORN SAVAGE!
