Yesterday, I was walking around Weltenbuerger, a cutting edge fashion shop here in Los Angles filled with all kinds of amazing clothing and designers. They carry a lot of up-and-coming designers, most I had never heard of, but there was one designer though who really stood out for me, and that was Julian Zigerli.
Julian is a Swiss designer who studied the University of Art Berlin, aims to make clothes out of innovative Swiss textiles. The results are both vibrant and exciting, as you can see above and below. The pieces here are from his Spring/Summer 2013 collection which is titled “My Daddy Was A Military Pilot”. The collection features some summery styles like shorts and button-ups made out of some of the most outrageous fabric I’ve ever seen. I’m going to take a guess and say that the fabric was all digitally printed, and if that’s true, it’s pretty spectacular to see how far the technology has come.
Would I personally wear these? Probably not. But I’m happy to know that someone is out there making audacious clothes like these. Men’s fashion can be so pedestrian, and I think Julian strives to make it so much more fun. In fact, this snippet from his bio sums up his work so well.
Julian Zigerli’s men’s collection stands for useful, smart and technical high- class pieces with a sporty touch. There is always a lot of love, color, humour and positivity involved in his designs.
