January 2014 - Le Salon, Paris
Parisian launch of Julian Zigerli's FW14-15 Collection, designed in collaboration with French digital artists Golgotha.
A 4-days showroom and exhibition during Paris Fashion Week launched by a PR & Friendly gathering in the DIY art gallery Le Salon.
A Utopia, a dream, a person beyond our conception. True perfection.
We gaze upon nature, and feel the inspiration from completion and perfection. We want to be one with her..wallow in her...deify and celebrate her.
With Julian Ziegerli’s new A/W 14 Collection he recognizes nature’s beauty and gives it a new and perceptible aura. A chemical formula has been created and a new man is born.
The prints are influenced from an aesthetic profundity and a geometric clearness. The collaboration with the Parisian graphic artists GOLGOTHA, brings the complex multi-layered structures of Zigerli’s work to life. The trio GOLGOTHA completes the collection with their fantastic work with a three-dimensional and supernatural structure. The Hexagon loses its geometric coldness, and becomes a honeycomb- An animated webbing that fuses together with the body. Strikingly, the welded seams complement the functionality of the clothing. They form a framework that extends from a modern Dandy to a rocker straight out of the 1950s. This framework leaves the appearance of today’s man powerful, clean and sporty. It’s as if the collection was formed from wax, and sealed in eternity as to never lose their beauty: A devoted illusion.
Julian Zigerli’s fashion stands for practical, smart and technically first class pieces. Love, color, humor and positivity flow through his designs.
