Singer/songwriter, A.CHAL is the latest artist to talk music, fashion, lovemaking and staying grounded for SSENSE. The Peruvian-born, NY-bred and LA-based artist opened up about his Latin heritage, vintage style, and signature, “BIG SEXY” sound for the newly released editorial feature.
“It’s kind of like having sex,” he said, when asked about his process for creating records like ‘Love N Hennessey’ and his newly released ‘Perdóname.’ “It could start with a conversation, it could start with a kiss, it could start with a phone call, but once that spark hits you just follow it.”
Photographed by Christian Werner and styled by Richie Davies, the editorial spread features the R&B singer clad in looks from Acne Studios, Helmut Lang, Calvin Klein and Balenciaga. On his personal style, A.CHAL notes, “Back in the day my dad dressed the way I do now. He wore bell bottoms and boots or high-top sneakers with short soccer pants, a nice button-up, and glasses. I take a lot of that, as far as the Spanish side and then New York—I feel like you just have to be well-dressed…You have to be bold.”
