TECHUNTER LABROOM [Concept]
For this season Paris Fashion Week and for our new printed magazine launch we've built an exclusive physical space in the centre of Parisian Le Marais district to showcase our project in very detail and celebrate this moment with our audience and friends.
Combining everything we do in what we've called LABROOM – the space represent our work and our passion to everything's functional, merging the objects of design and installations for our audience and community to explore.

Exclusively shown in Paris, we're happy to tell more about it and dive deep into the world of TECHUNTER.
Central object of our LABROOM is the TECHUNTER 08 - our latest printed magazine.

After our latest printed issue, released back in 2019 we switched to digital magazines, when SARS-CoV-2 stucked us all at home and the only communication tool we had was internet.

Now we're more than happy to get back to print and meet our community, sharing our knowledges and findings in physical object.
TECHUNTER 08 is what we've been working for the last half of the year. It weights 800 grams and consists of 226 pages of unique content we proudly combined on the pages of our magazine: research articles, interviews, factory and studio visits, editorials, cookbooks, THM Macroshots, as well as our new rubric called ETCETERA, where we want to give a voice to our fellow creatives and friends to express and share their vision and ideas on the pages of our magazine.

Exclusively shown in Paris, the magazine will be available worldwide vie the list of our stockists.
The thing we always happy to speak about and represent - is what we actually explore: apparel.

For our LABROOM we brought some rare pieces from our both outerwear and footwear archives. Pieces that you probably didn't see in person before.

TECHUNTER LABROOM [Concept]
Each season, fashion enthusiasts from across the globe gather in Paris. Whether they are long-time attendees or first-time visitors, they all share a passion for design and are part of the bigger picture that is Fashion Week.

As active participants in this industry – through its global consultancy engagements, productions or activations, editorial work, and so on – Beinghunted. and TECHUNTER have both established a network of like-minded individuals who are positioned at the core of cultural moments and events. While many individuals involved are known faces, some remain relatively unknown to the wider public. “The Class Of _” (TCO) was brought to life as a democratic compendium – like a school yearbook that everyone gets in on – to compile the profiles of as many people as possible who contribute to these extraordinary happenings.
TCO is an ongoing project that extends beyond fashion week. Sports events, film festivals, and art fairs are among the other moments that we have on our bucket list for the series.

For its inaugural launch in Paris, we partnered up to capture men's Paris Fashion Week in June 2023. This first edition, meant as a test run, has already produced a noteworthy output: 186 portraits capture the intimate yet broad network of industry leaders in both front-of-house and back-of-house functions, as well as up-and-coming creatives. The list ranges from emerging talents like Jeong Li, Newfacet, or Charlie Constantinou to well-known figures such as Hanna Lindblad, Kiko Kostadinov, Errolson Hugh or Tommy Cash.

The portraits were taken by Beinghunted., TECHUNTER Magazine, and fellow contributors Adam Katz Sinding and Leo Wild, each offering their distinct aesthetic to the photo series posted on TCO's dedicated Instagram channel @theclassof_.

All entries are accompanied by the subjects' names, titles, and sometimes a short quote or motto that captures their feelings in the midst of a frantic fashion week. Check out some of our friends below.
After its successful start (the IG channel reached 7.5K accounts within three weeks of its launch), TCO will continue in the coming months covering more participants at different events. The physical yearbook or zine for Paris is set to launch in the coming months, so keep an eye on the official IG account to not miss the news.
