Men’s army keeps on marching into the madness of times.
Boris Bidjan Saberi has always pushed the boundaries of military aesthetic by designing finely crafted uniforms for contemporary fashion soldiers. His powerful creative vision allowed him to innovate the staples of combat clothing from their inner side through meticulous studies of different pattern-making and tailoring techniques. For the Spring – Summer 2015, Saberi digged up into the rich melting-pot of complex motifs which animates his brand’s background as well as his mixed roots and gave to tactical garments a rougher nomadic feel. Technically focused on moulding his own produced leathers, the collection showcased an harsh juxtaposition between crisp and sharp elements with grungy and loose proportions which perfectly worked together by creating a seamless layering. Ranging from donkey to horse and kangaroo leather, the selection of primal material was impressive and included beautiful cashmeres, technical fabrics and raw hand-knits similar to soft armours. The net lining and the perforated leather pieces conveyed an idea of flexibility also enhanced by the multiple zips that made the garments highly transformable. Reproducing a controlled martial beat, the show soundtrack provided by experimental electronic artist Ben Forst fully expressed the garments ethos. Armed of a rugged and straightforward design identity, Boris Bidjan Saberi has been able to create within his loyal public a shared sense of community somehow similar to the brothership of warriors. Soon his first flagship store will open in New York and an exclusive BBS installation will take over Darklands, the Berlin based concept boutique which supported the designer since the beginning of his career. This two upcoming events will strenghten even more Boris Bidjan Saberi’s image by developing coherently his unique artistic universe.
The soldier and the rebel fight together in darkness for life and light.
