Resistance Freak: Nic Endo for Illamasqua
You might know Nic Endo from Atari Teenage Riot, that german digital hardcore band whose members expose their concerns and complains through music and lyrics focusing on political, environmental and social worldwide issues. You might also know her as the born american, half german-half japanese, beauty with a kanji (tenki-resistance) on her face who signs and plays synths in the band.
Nic is not just a talent, a brain and one of the most stunning women in the world, she’s also an eco fighter who likes “different beauty” and one of my favorite ladies and musicians in the entire Earth.
Good news she’s the new face of vegan cosmetic brand Illamasqua for their “Freak” new fragance and small cosmetic range. In Nic’s own words listen (read) what this campaign is all about because I couldn’t express it better:
“Illamasqua’s idea is to completely forget about those role models, look at who you really are and which sides of your personality you want to bring out. I find this very radical and modern in its approach”.
Read below a description of Nic’s style and fashion statements:
In terms of work ethic, fashion style and attitude towards creative work, I think may as well have been the inofficial love child of Rei Kawakubo and Maya Deren’.
‘Birkenstock’s, and for that matter, any type of shoes that resemble them; anything floral printed; anything frilled or ruffled’.

And if you share the idea that the world is not fair and art is a great form to expose your ideas and opinions about it, you might as well read some ATR interviews then listen, understand, live the catharsis and enjoy the music.
Resistance and revolution shall never finish. The time is right to fight!
